A Point by Point Response to Donald Wiebe: A Manifesto for the Scientific study of Religion

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift/Konferencebidrag i tidsskrift /Bidrag til avisTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review


A point by point response to Wiebe's 'Manifesto', mostly in support of the 'methodological naturalism'-with added precautions on the current use of the term 'science'. A philosophy for the study of religion is called for, with an epistemological range that caters for collective methodologies and social ontologies; respects the analytic distinction between 'subject matter' and 'theoretical object'-and, ultimately, the theoryladenness of all talk about 'religion'. Naturalism is not about givens in the study of meaningful human behavior.
