Religion, theory, critique

Classic and contemporary approaches and methodologies

Edited by

Richard King

Religion, Theory, Critique is an essential tool for learning about theory and method in the study of religion. Leading experts engage with contemporary and classical theories as well as non-Western cultural contexts. Unlike other collections, this anthology emphasizes the dynamic relationship between "religion" as an object of study and different methodological approaches and openly addresses the question of the manifold ways in which "religion," "secular," and "culture" are imagined within different disciplinary horizons. This volume is the first textbook whichseeks to engage discussion of classical approaches with contemporary cultural and critical theories.
