Wittgenstein, Grammar, and God

  • By Alan Keightley
Wittgenstein, Grammar, and God attempts to clarify the nature of what has come to be called the Wittgenstenian approach to religious belief, and to demonstrate the radicality of its challenge to contemporary ways of studying and assessing religion. Apart from Wittgenstein's own work, it pays close attention to his present day followers, D. Z. Phillips, R. Rhees, etc. It examines the central questions of the meaning of God and reductionism, but the book also tries to show how the debate about Wittgenstein impinges upon the problems of the contemporary theologian. In short, this study attempts to cast a fresh perspective on the quest for clarity on our understanding of religion. Alan Keightley, born in 1944, worked for the British Rail for eight years before going to theological college. He graduated with first class honors in Theology from Bristol University in 1971, and completed his doctoral studies at Birmingham University in 1974. Dr. Keightley was head of Religious Studies at Walton High School, Halesowen, Worchestershire, and a Methodist local preacher.
