I regard philosophical work primarily as disentangling. By clarifying what explicit or implicit presuppositions a certain argument or problem is based on, and how the argument can be evaluated depending on what stance is taken in different ethical, conceptual, philosophical, gender theoretical etc issues, I hold that an important part of the philosophical work is done.

For me the great satisfaction with philsosophy of religion is that so much can be encompassed within the subject: all (possible and impossible) philosophical problems that arise from religious phenomena may be discussed and analyzed, all ideas and arguments may be suggested and tested, since there are no given or unquestionable answers.

My basic scientific stance contain an openness for all ideas and problemareas until they have been shown to be untenable or irrelevant, and then always relative to a certain context, question, problem or scientific paradigm.
