Panel Organised by the Italian Society for Philosophy of Religion - Associazione Italiana di Filosofia della Religione (AIFR)

Religious Experience is a relevant topic in many academic areas, ranging from Philosophy of Religion to Epistemology, from Religious Studies to Cognitive Science. We will take into account different philosophical interpretations of religious experiences, especially those based on a set of theistic beliefs. We will also discuss some epistemological issues related with religious experience and the rational plausibility of the latter in the light of contemporary naturalism. Moreover, we will try to explain the difference between ordinary religious experiences, deep experiences and mystical experiences. In this view, we will consider some theological interpretations of religious experience in different religious contexts.
