Professor Timothy Knepper's section of Paths, Spring 2013

This class traces the construction of category of "religion" as a distinct object of inquiry in the modern West. Special attention will be devoted to the construction of the category of "world religion" at and through the 1893 World Parliament of Religions, and the consequent delineation of bounded and unified religious traditions such as "Hinduism," "Buddhism," and the "Judeo-Christian" tradition. Such constructions will be considered in and from a variety of disciplinary perspectives (e.g., history, sociology, anthropology, psychology, philosophy).
