Naturalism And Religion

Rudolf Otto

""Naturalism and Religion"" is a philosophical book written by Rudolf Otto, a German theologian and philosopher. In this book, Otto examines the relationship between naturalism and religion, two opposing worldviews. Naturalism is the belief that everything can be explained by natural causes and laws, while religion asserts the existence of a supernatural realm beyond the natural world.Otto argues that naturalism is insufficient to explain the complexity and depth of human experience, particularly in regards to religious experiences. He posits that religion is a unique aspect of human existence that cannot be reduced to naturalistic explanations. Otto explores the nature of religious experience, the role of myth and symbolism in religion, and the relationship between religion and morality.The book also delves into the historical and cultural context of naturalism and religion, examining their development and interaction throughout history. Otto critiques the limitations of naturalistic thinking and argues for the importance of recognizing the role of the supernatural in human experience.Overall, ""Naturalism and Religion"" is a thought-provoking exploration of the fundamental questions of human existence and the relationship between naturalism and religion. It is a seminal work in the field of philosophy and theology, and continues to be relevant and influential in contemporary discussions of religion and science.Edited With An Introduction By Rev. W.
