Discipline of Religion by Russell T. McCutcheon

Book Description

The Discipline of Religion is a lively critical journey through religious studies today, looking at its recent growth as an academic discipline, and its contemporary political and social meanings. Focusing on the differences between religious belief and academic religious discourse, Russell T. McCutcheon argues that the invention of religion as a discipline blurs the distinction between criticism and doctrine in its assertion of the relevance of faith as a credible object of study. In the leap from disciplinary criticism to avowal of actual cosmic and moral meaning, schools of religious studies extend their powers far beyond universities and into the everyday lives of those outside, managing and curtailing specific types of speech and dissent.

Books By Author Russell T. McCutcheon

Entanglements by Russell T. McCutcheon Entanglements, Paperback (March 2014)

Entanglements attempts to argue against those who claim that scholarship on the category religion is only of secondary interest, in that it fails to do primary research on real religions. The volume collects eighteen responses, written across twenty years, that each exemplify the inevitably situated, give-and-take nature of all academic debate.

Religious Experience by Russell T. McCutcheon Religious Experience, Paperback (November 2012)

This Reader presents writings from both those who assume the existence and possible universality of religious experience and those who question the very rhetoric of "experience".

Introducing Religion by Russell T. McCutcheon Introducing Religion, Hardback (January 2008)
