Philosophy of New Religion

Philosophy of New Religion: An Analytical Study of New and Alternative Religious Movements

We are soliciting papers, in the analytical tradition, to be included in a collection on new and alternative religious movements. Each paper should offer both a brief outline of a movement and a philosophical analysis of one or more of its core tenets.

Examples of suitable movements for study include (but are not limited to): Scientology, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormonism), Raelianism, Wicca, The Exclusive Brethren, Digitalism, Satanism, Rastafarianism, The Sathya Sai Baba movement, and Christian Science.

Interested parties should email (moluck@csu.edu.au) an abstract (200 -400 words) of their proposed paper, along with their C.V by April the 30th.

Further questions should be directed to:
