Open-mindedness in Philosophy of Religion

In a free society, it is common to hear the request that one ‘keep an open mind.’ Just what exactly is it, however, to keep an open-mind? How does open-mindedness function? How does it square with important personal commitments? These issues are particularly acute when it comes to matters of religious belief in which open-mindedness can sound to the pious a bit too much like doubt. Certainly, in a discipline whose discourse remains rational dialogue, effort should be spent discerning the contours of this virtue, especially in light of its formal role in establishing responsiveness to new inquiries in matters philosophical and religious. This book provides a collection of essays serving to promote conversation about open-mindedness, its virtue (or lack thereof), and its role and application in problems in the philosophy of religion in particular.

In the Unbound trilogy’s “vivid and thrilling” conclusion, Emma’s fantastical literary journey brings her to Paris and The Phantom of the Opera (Kirkus Reviews). For Emma Townsend, spending senior year at a Paris boarding school means dazzling architecture, gorgeous cafés, and a hefty workload. But no matter how busy her days, Emma misses her coast guard boyfriend, Gray. That lonely ache might explain the unsettling whispers Emma hears in the school’s empty corridors, and the flickering images in her room’s antique mirror. Her foreboding only increases as she reads Gaston Leroux’s The Phantom of the Opera and becomes lost in the gothic masterpiece. When Gray goes missing during a rescue at sea, Emma refuses to believe the worst. In her strange waking dreams, Gray is very much alive, drawing Emma into a mysterious otherworld beyond her mirror. Friends worry that she’s losing her grip on reality. Emma half wonders if they’re right . . . and if her own story will end in a way she never envisioned.
