Briefly my thesis centres upon the following four considerations:
(1) a presentation and analysis of Wittgenstein's work in the philosophy of religion.
(2) a series of replies to a number of criticisms of Wittgenstein's position.
(3) an examination of how the techniques of "ordinary language" philosophy function in the philosophy of religion.
(4) a suggestion as to a possible relationship between the current work being done in the philosophy of language, and the linguistic problems in the philosophy of religion.
