Kevin Schilbrack’s Philosophy and the Study of Religion: A Manifesto proposes to reform the traditional Philosophy of Religion by reference to three goals that it should have. In pursuit of those goals he argues for a pair of hierarchical two-stage methodologies. I argue that there are tensions between his defence of these methodologies and the philosophical apparatus he brings to bear in explicating the goals themselves.
