Om bogen

Den sammenlignende religionsforskning, i Danmark normalt kendt som religionsfænomenologi, har længe været i krise. Den tidligste religionshistoriske forskning var en periode med store synteser og brede sammenligninger. De kom i miskredit, og der fulgte en lang periode med detaljerede studier og en usikkerhed omkring de videnskabelige grundlag for religionsfænomenologien.

Dette værk viser, hvordan mange af den tidligere forsknings problemer nu kan løses ved at inddrage nye videnskabsteoretiske og sprogfilosofiske erkendelser.

Pressen skrev

Russel T. Mccutcheon History of Religions

"With such a diverse publication record, Jensen gives an excellent example of the depth of the current Danish field in the study of religion - one that has become particularily active over the past two decades. Jensen may therefore bet his generation's meta-bricoleur insomuch as he stands back from recent work and surveys the theoretical landscape that has made it possible to begin talking about religion in a different manner.

...this book is worth reading preciesely because the position it adopts takes into account a variety of disparate work, published across several academic fields over the past few generations. That is, the service such a work offers to its readers is among the first books that try to state, by means of systematic argumentation, the set of background assumptions that inform the work of a new generation of scholars who have passed through the fires of postmodernism but who still wish to say something about the causes and functions of what seems to be observable, cross-cultural regularities in human behaviour."
