Description - Theory for Religious Studies by William E. Deal

The field of religious studies is growing and growing up. No longer confined by the theoretical writings of great thinkers like Durkheim and Eliade, the field today is just as much influenced by the work of Slavoj Zizek or bell hooks, Walter Benjamin or Gayatri Spivak. In this handy volume, two professors of religious studies provide the student of religious studies--whether the motivated undergraduate, graduate student, or professor--with a brief review of theorists' work from the perspective of religious studies. For example, in five to ten pages, the reader is provided with a review of Emmanuel Levinas' work as it offers insights for scholars in religious studies, followed by a selected bibliography. In short, this is a guide for students of religious studies that will take major theoretical writers in the humanities and social sciences and explain their elevance to the study of religion.
