9788772895727: Secular Theories on Religion: Current Perspectives

In quite a few corners of the academic world, the study of religion has not emancipated itself entirely from religious, especially Christian theological, perspectives and agendas. In this book a number of prominent scholars present their ideas of how religion should be perceived from a non-religious (secular), academic and scientific point of view, how the studies should be undertaken and what role, if any, the scholar of religion can or should play in public debates. This book is primarily directed to students in classes of theory and method and to scholars engaged in the current debate and the emancipatory efforts. It is the hope of the editors that the present volume can help pave the way for more critical and more analytical studies of religion.

Book Description Museum Tusculanum Press. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Secular Theories on Religion: A Selection of Recent Academic Perspectives, Mikael Rothstein, Tim Jensen, The authors have been asked to present their ideas of what a secular study of religion should be like, what methods it should apply, what aims, and what kind of scientific thinking to pursue. The result is a broad pattern of approaches, some wholly theoretical, some also based on case studies. All in all, the texts offer a comprehensive account of modern scholarly positions and summarizes much of the ongoing theoretical debate and the effort to further emancipate the study of religion from theological biases.
