This final chapter sums up the main arguments of the book. It's aims have been to trace the parallels in Kierkegaard's and Wittgenstein's conception of philosophy and examine the affinities in their thought about religious belief. The book has attempted to undermine some of the more tenacious myths surrounding Kierkegaard's and Wittgenstein's religious thought and to show that the two authors — especially when read in the light of each other — still present the greatest challenge to the received orthodoxies in the philosophy of religion as well as to the subject's (philosophy's) own conception of itself.

Keywords:   Kierkegaard, Wittenstein, religious thought, philosophy of religion
