Book Description State University of New York Press, United States, 1996. Paperback. Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Reconstructing Eliade is a concept-by-concept analysis of the thought of Mircea Eliade and a re-evaluation of his analysis of religion. It illustrates how a thorough familiarity with Eliade s work can produce an interpretation of his thought as systematic, coherent, and fully rational. Part One provides an analysis of the terms of Eliade s understanding of religion--hierophany, the sacred and the dialectic of the sacred and profane, homo religiosus, myths and symbols--and thus of the meaning of religion implied throughout his work. Part Two inspects various problems which arise in light of this analysis, particularly relativism and the role of commitment. Part Three applies this analysis to certain problems--religion in the modern world and Eliade s unfinished analysis of the modern, the postmodern phenomenon, implicit religion, and various related problems in the study of religion. Far from being outmoded and inadequate, Eliade s thought is suggested to be fertile ground for the reconception of religious realities in the contemporary world. Seller Inventory # APC9780791427644

Book Description State University of New York Press. Paperback. Condition: New. 308 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 5.8in. x 0.9in.Provides a coherent and defensible interpretation of Eliades thought which allows less familiar readers to approach Eliade with a greater clarity and precision. Foreword by Mac Linscott Ricketts, a leading translator of Eliades writings. This is one of the very best overall defences of Eliades ideas I have read. The outstanding scholarly value of this work is that Rennie has very well done for Eliade what the latter did not, or could not, do. Rennie s treatment of the so-called Hidden Theological Agenda and the Ontological Assumptions of Eliade are of crucial significance to the distinction of this work among others. A ll this is especially important in light of what has seemed a parade of would-be jack-the-giant-killers over the past two decades. The author has not only shown Eliade to be hard to dismiss among the great thinkers of the age on the subject of religion. Rennie has also practically transformed the Eliade problem into the Eliade prospect. -- Wendell Charles Beane, University of Wisconsin-OshkoshReconstructing Eliade is a concept-by-concept analysis of the thought of Mircea Eliade and a re-evaluation of his analysis of religion. It illustrates how a thorough familiarity with Eliades work can produce an interpretation of his thought as systematic, coherent, and fully rational.
