- edited by Tim Jensen & Mikael Rothstein.
- Copenhagen : Museum Tusculanum Press, 2000.
- Physical description
- 279 p. ; 25 cm.
- Includes bibliographical references.
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.
