Kwakryzm liberalny jako religia pluralizmu religijnego

Title variants

Liberal Quakerism as a religion of religious pluralism

Languages of publication


The article suggests that liberal Quakerism could become a religion of liberal pluralism (the latter term is conceived of as an alternative to exclusivism and inclusivism). The article discusses the opinion of Pink Dandelion that the contemporary liberal Quakerism is ruled by the total skepticism, showing that this skepticism is not a Quaker outlook but only a way of common life for people belonging to different, private worldviews. Skepticism is a self-restrain for those people who, having different private worldviews, want to worship together in silence. Quaker religious pluralism seems also to be a good alternative to essentially ineffective interfaith dialogue.
