Om bogen

Religion og videnskab anses ofte som uforenelige. Hvor videnskab forudsætter rationel argumentation, er religion derimod blevet opfattet som irrationel. I religionsvidenskaben har de videnskabelige krav til rationalitet ofte haft problematiske vilkår. I denne bog fremhæver forfatterne rationalitet som den uomgængelige forudsætning for al videnskabelig udforskning af religion. Videnskabelig rationalitet kan ikke længere forsvares ud fra et positivistisk videnskabssyn, men derfor kan rationalitet stadig begrundes - blot på andre præmisser end de traditionelle.

Bidragene til Rationality and the Study of Religion er hovedsagelig videnskabsteoretisk orienterede. De inddrager teorier og emner fra religionsforskning, kognitive videnskaber, antropologi, sociologi og historieforskning.

Pressen skrev

"It will function well in the context of a graduate seminar or a course on methodologies and basic issues in the study of religion. Anyone engaging questions of method and theory and concerned about the role of the scholar of religion in the academy will find it informative." Scott S. Elliot Religious Studies Review
