Abstract

In this paper I make initial attempts to distinguish ‘dialogue’ from other forms of intellectual engagement across boundaries of disagreement. From there I consider an argument from the diversity of religions, modelled on atheological arguments elsewhere in philosophy of religion. I use this argument to explore defensible responses and provide some argumentation for a kind of pluralism about the diversity of religions that differs from Hick’s.
