Chapter: 17. My Preliminary Journey through the World of J. Z. Smith

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.39830


In this essay, originally a blog post published on The Bulletin for the Study of Religion, Mitsutoshi Horii asserts the value of “getting lost” in the work of Jonathan Z. Smith. Horri credits Smith, alongside scholars like Timothy Fitzgerald, with enabling his own cross-disciplinary approach, which connects the sociology and social theory of Japanese Buddhism with theoretical considerations of the category of “religion.”
