The value of no value judgements in religious studies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Ultimate truths and dogma form part of many religions, which poses epistemological challenges to researchers who have differing beliefs yet wish to study these religions. I have argued that conceptual bridging is a prerequisite in meeting this challenge as religious studies scholars should have a deep knowledge base of a variety of belief systems to assist in conceptualising the believers' world. Scholars, however, need to be comfortable hearing the truths of others, which at times may be contrary to their own worldviews.
