about this item

Scholars of religion contribute to the discourse research in the study of religion with theoretical reflections and contexts and cases. Among their topics are the current re-evaluation of religion and Luhmann's concept of risk, the search for equivalents of religion and the challenge of theorizing a global discourse of religion, towards a praxeology of religious life, exploring the spread of marketization discourse in the Nordic Folk Church context, discursive constructions of religion in the work of United Nations Special Rapporteurs on the freedom of religion or belief, and the complex discursivity of religion. Many of the 14 essays emerged from a 2014 conference in Groningen. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
