RS 1B06 TERMS/CONCEPTS (2012) Eastern Religions Prof. A. Pearson Note: As scholar of religion John Hick has written: “Any discussion of religion in its plurality of forms is inevitably beset by problems of terminology. Each tradition has its own vocabulary, expressing its own system of concepts; and whilst these overlap with those of other traditions, so that there are all manner of correspondences, parallels, analogies and structural similarities, yet each set of terms is only fully at home in its own particular linguistic environment. We have very little in the way of a tradition-neutral religious vocabulary” (An Interpretation of Religion: Human Responses to the transcendent 2004:9).
