Rethinking Religion

Full Product Description

This book is an ambitious attempt to develop a cognitive approach to religion. Focusing particularly on ritual action, it borrows analytical methods from linguistics and other cognitive sciences. The authors, a philosopher of science and a scholar of comparative religion, provide a lucid critical review of established approaches to religion, and make a strong plea for the combination of interpretation and explanation. Often represented as competitive approaches, they are rather, complementary, equally vital to the study of symbolic systems.

Rethinking Religion by E. Thomas Lawson; Robert N. McCauley was published by Cambridge University Press (Virtual Publishing) in June 2015. The ISBN for Rethinking Religion is 9781139170086.
