“My religion is of interest only to me, as its various phases and how they followed one another are not unusual or especially instructive.” (Rawls 2010, 261)
The above sentence is how John Rawls begins his rather informal note titled “On My Religion.” I have been thinking about this sentence lately and mostly laughing to myself about it.
On one hand, this is an example of his humility. Afterall, who would care about musings on religion by some obscure philosopher. Rawls had similar sentiments when it came to publishing collections of his essays and his lectures on both moral and political philosophy.
Ok, back to that project.
