about this item

Martin and Wiebe collect 11 essays they have written separately or with each other, correcting typos and updating references, but otherwise leaving them as they were originally published. Other scholars of religion respond to some of the essays, and they themselves reply to some of the responses. Their topics include a rationale for a change of name for the International Association for the History of Religions, on declaring war: a critical comment, pseudo-speciation of the human race: religions as hazard-precaution systems, pro-sociality and assortive-sociality in the formation and maintenance of religious groups, religious studies as a scientific discipline: the persistence of a delusion, and a case study documenting the delusion.
