Pluralism and Truth in Religion: Karl Jaspers on Existential Truth

Kane, John F.


Taking up one of the basic issues raised by modern awareness of religious pluralism, John F. Kane examines and criticizes the idea that differing religions could be equally true. He focuses on Karl Jasper's analysis of the symbolic character of religious truth as one major example of a widely accepted way of explaining the possibility of a plurality of true religions. The inadequacies of Jasper's approach are seen as instructive for future efforts to wrestle with the problem of pluralism and truth.
