Open Access Location
This paper offers a new method for a new pluralism. The author offers an examination of John Hick’s religious pluralism and George Lakoff and Mark Johnson’s conceptual metaphor theory (CMT). After detailing the amendments required for both Hick’s pluralism and Lakoff and Johnson’s CMT the author offers an updated version of the former and an amended version of the latter. In the final section a ‘hyper-pluralism’ is offered as well as a method for the account of religious diversity through religious expression via living inter-personal conceptual schemata (RELICS).
