He argues that scientific and philosophical objections to the idea of survival after death can be challenged, and he claims that human inadequacy in facing suffering supports the basic religious argument for immortality.

Access options available:. By JoHN H. New York: Harper and Row, His wideranging but critical study basically seeks to establish both the plausibility of the doctrine of personal human immortality and possible modalities of post-mortem existence. Hick stresses that his study of immortality is to be a different approach utilizing the insights present in all the religions of the world, rather than a presentation restricted to Western views of life after death. This he terms the" Copernican revolution in theology," which views " religions as different responses to variously overlapping aspects of the same Ultimate Reality " p. Hick rightly notes that the heart of the matter is the nature of man, and to this he repeatedly returns.
John Hick was arguably one of the most important and influential philosophers of religion of the second half of the twentieth century. As a British philosopher in the anglo-analytic tradition , Hick did groundbreaking work in religious epistemology, philosophical theology, and religious pluralism. As a young law student, Hick underwent a strong religious experience that led him to accept evangelical Christianity and to change his career direction to theology and philosophy. This experience would prove not only life-altering but also important for his subsequent philosophical views. Early in his career, Hick argued that Christian faith is based not on propositional evidence but on religious experience. He thus defended Christian faith against the evidentialist criticisms of the then dominant logical positivists. In the late s, Hick had another set of experiences that dramatically affected his life and work.

Dialogues in the Philosophy of Religion
John Hick argues that there is no good reason to rule out the existence of an afterlife a priori before experience. Hick takes a decidedly empirical stance toward views of the afterlife from the various world religions. He invokes the principle of openness to all data, attempting to withhold any bias for or against any particular view. Hick argues for the possibility of each of these views and examines each for internal consistency and explanatory value.
Universalism is the religious doctrine that every created person will sooner or later be reconciled to God, the loving source of all that is, and will in the process be reconciled to all other persons as well. Insofar as Christianity is a historical religion and includes substantive beliefs about the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, Christians are indeed committed to the view that anyone who denies this historical event is mistaken and anyone who does not understand its theological significance has not yet grasped the full truth of the matter. John Hick, the best-known proponent of universalism among twentieth-century philosophers of religion, has also been one of the most outspoken defenders of religious pluralism.
