Definition

Monotheism The doctrine or belief that there is only one God.

‘Once the option for religion has been made, the only serious alternatives are pantheism and monotheism.’

 From https://www.lexico.com/definition/monotheism

 

Monism; A theory or doctrine that denies the existence of a distinction or duality in a particular sphere, such as that between matter and mind, or God and the world.

‘If this step from monotheism to monism goes too far, in what ways can Judaism respond to a postmodern desire for Oneness?’

Compare with pluralism

  • ‘Theism might always be about meaning, but what religion would look like if monism were asserted against theism is an open question.’
