Synopsis

Religion, Culture, History: A Philosophical Study of Religion brings the light of philosophy to dark subjects such as magic, ritual, symbol, belief and ideology; queries explanations of religion from the physical and social sciences and from theology; follows the polemic of belief and doubt through many arguments; recounting teachings from many traditions and accounts by many philosophers concerning religion, from India, China and the West; examining theism and atheism together, and exploring the close relationship between religion and politics.

"An impressive introduction to global religions and the urge to worship, from ancient history to today … Far-reaching, erudite introduction to philosophy of religion," Kirkus Reviews.
