John Hick's Argument

A Level: Edexcel

An investigation into John Hick's argument from religious experience, including what it is, how it works, and why it's convincing. This lesson provides a brief biography of John Hick, and summarises the text of The Existence of God. This includes discussion of the difference between experiencing and experiencing-as, and how this difference explains why believers from different religions experience different types of religious experience.
