In my project “The Meaning of Existential Commitments for Personal Identity”, I pursue the analysis of religious expressions by analyzing religious speech acts for the purpose of a clarification of what type of speech acts such religious ‘expressions’ pose and what the speakers are claiming and whether such expressions are even truth apt. Such a clarification can serve to make visible what happens in religious contexts and what speakers may be claiming about the world around them and, especially interestingly, about themselves.
