The Insider/outsider Problem in the Study of Religion
A ReaderBook - 1999
The insider/outsider problem is a theoretical and methodological issue that confronts the student of human behaviour and culture. This anthology collects 30 readings, from such writers as Kant, Hume, Schleiermacher and Otto, to Ninian Smart, Mircea Eliade, Karen McCarthy-Brown and Wendy Doniger-O'Flaherty, that investigate the ways in which scholars of religion have grappled with the relations between studying, practising and advocating. Moving from influential readings in linguistics and anthropology, the volume's thematically arranged chapter introduce readers to the strengths and weaknesses of several popular options in addressing the insider/outsider problem.
