Provides a handy introduction to an approach that can show what the academic study of religion can look like when one takes both humanistic and scientific approaches seriously.
Studies in Religion / Sciences Religieuses

In essence, the book provides an approach, the theoretical frame-work it is based on, critiques of it, and case studies using it. The book would thus be a wonderful teaching tool for students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels who are exploring ways methods are developed and used. In addition, the utmost value of this book lies not only in that it presents another way to interpret religious phenomena and experience, but that it also represents the next step in melding fields (the natural, behavioral, and humanistic sciences) in an attempt to expand interdisciplinary studies, an enterprise valued by so many in the scholarly community.
