EMPIRICAL KNOWLEDGE AND RELIGION FAITH
Languages of publication
Referring to the session 'Science and religion' (Filozofia Nauki 1/2006) - esp. to Jan Wolenski's contribution article 'Return to the theory of double truth' - the author presents two ways of interpreting the meaning of religion statements. According to one of them, the statements may be shown to possess some kind of empirical content, due to their definitional connection with empirical terms of everyday language, and, in consequence, may bear logical relations to empirical statements. According to the other way of interpreting religion statements, they appear to be devoid of any empirical content and - as Wolenski claims - cannot be supported or threatened by any empirical data.
