Chapter: Afterword: The Meta-theoretical Landscape of Phenomenologies of Religion

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.38476


The Afterword offers a summative overview of the views of the phenomenology of religion (PoR), as presented by interviewers from ten countries, using three scales or axes. This is supplemented by an analysis of PoR's changing position in international religious studies conferences. These findings help to explain the interviewees’ varied and ambivalent reactions to PoR.
