The Significance of Religious Experience

Howard Wettstein

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides a sketch of the author’s religious development, from a newcomer to Orthodox Judaism in college, to rabbinical school, to renewed scepticism about religious fundamentals, a turn away from religion and to academic philosophy, and finally, many years later, a return to religious life, albeit without resolution of the epistemological and metaphysical quandaries.

Keywords:   religious belief, faith, scepticism, religious practice, philosophy, academia, Talmud, poetry, Wittgenstein
