About this item

Religion: Social Religion is broken into four parts: psychology of religion, sociology of religion, anthropology of religion, and the historical method. Each section will start with an overview of the discipline, then cover the originative figures who shaped the field, followed by a historical and contemporary view of the field, and concluding with the major criticisms, debates, and future of the field. Targeting undergraduates as well as the educated lay reader, Religion: Social Religion introduces the study of religion through the lens of social science. Chapters are written by eminent scholars, are peer reviewed, include illustrations, and offer bibliographies to encourage further research. The volume concludes with a glossary and a comprehensive index.
