Description

Based on Jonathan Z. Smith’s own reply to the author’s earlier article on Smith’s work—a correspondence from 1999-2000—Urban explores the implications for the field today of both Smith’s call for scholars of religion to be relentlessly self-conscious in their work and his focus on the comparative method.
