GERICKE, Jaco W.. J.H. le Roux's philosophy of religion. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2013, vol.34, n.2, pp. 1-6. ISSN 1609-9982.
J.H. le Roux had a passion for philosophy. His writings contain recourse to the history of philosophy in a way that bespeaks a deep underlying interest in the subject. This much is relatively well-known. This contribution, by contrast, aims at reconstructing something hitherto mostly covert: Le Roux's philosophy of religion. Of interest is what his writings presuppose about the nature of religion, religious language, the nature of God, the existence of God, religious epistemology, the relation between religion and morality and the problem of religious pluralism.
