Religious belief is linguistically and culturally determined. Specific 'language use' is the particular means of appropriating and forming religious consciousness. There is this a linguistic bias in every religious belief system. This course relies on the linguistic philosophical writings of Ludwig Wittgenstein, especially his exposition of language-games, family resemblances, rule-following, and forms of life, in order to explore the linguistic and cultural determination of religious belief.
