dc.description.abstract This study is an attempt at developing the most viable approach towards religious diversity. It aims at evaluating some of the existing approaches towards the problem of religious diversity, in order to be able to suggest a specific approach towards religious plurality in the South African context. John Hick's suggestion of religious pluralism is evaluated critically both in terms of its theoretical viability, as well as its practical implications for interreligious dialogue. This study considers John Hick's religious pluralism to be a typically modernist project and therefore not ideal for the handling of a post-modern phenomenon such as religious diversity. A post-modern, anti-subjectivist approach is used as a critical tool in analysing Hick's position as well as developing a new approach to religious diversity. This post-modern, anti-subjectivist approach also offers a new perspective on the possibilities of interreligious dialogue. Finally the conclusion is drawn that mankind should resist constructing comprehensive modernist theories regarding the Transcendent Reality, and rather engage in interreligious dialogue within a post-modernist framework. The advantage of this approach to interreligious dialogue is that mankind once again becomes open to the experience of truth as revelation. en_US
