Phenomenologies of Religion

ID: 2824 - View Book Page - Edit In OJS

The phenomenology of religion is a branch of the study of religion that claims to represent the core of the study of religion as an autonomous discipline. First used by the Dutch scholar Chantepie de la Saussaye in 1887, it was developed by Gerdardus van der Leeuw in the 1930s and 40s, became popular in the 1960s and 70s and then subsequently met severe criticism, virtually disappearing in the 2000s.

This volume consists of interviews with senior scholars in several countries who are experts about the development of the phenomenology of religion in their countries. In making these interviews available along with commentary and analysis, the volume investigates how the phenomenology of religion was accepted and developed in different national contexts. It looks at the reasons why it disappeared so abruptly in each country and reveals how scholars of religion currently evaluate the phenomenology of religion in their countries.
