Phillips, Dewi Zephaniah

Phillips, Dewi Zephaniah
   A British philosopher of religion heavily influenced by Wittgenstein and Wittgenstein's disciple Rush Rhees, D. Z. Phillips has held professorships in both his native Wales and the USA. A prolific author, he has written some twenty monographs and many articles, including analyses of immortality and prayer, in which his radical Wittgensteinian approach to religion has led him to argue that even believers do not think that religious beliefs are true or that prayer involves communication with God. In all his work his concern to treat religion as a separate form of life and religious language as a separate language game is apparent.
