About the Project

The Nature and Value of Faith project is a three-year initiative based at Baylor University, co-directed by Trent Dougherty and Daniel Howard-Snyder, with Jonathan Kvanvig.

Our project examines the nature of faith as a psychological attitude, state, or orientation in order to understand its value, its proper evaluation, and its contribution to a well-lived life.



Look out for a special issue of the International Journal of the Philosophy of Religion on "Approaches to Faith". See the expired CFP here.
