New Cambridge Studies in Religion and Critical Thought

New Cambridge Studies in Religion and Critical Thought combines philosophical clarity, historical scholarship, and ethical inquiry into the study of religion, considering such questions as: what does a properly critical approach to 'religion' or to particular religious traditions, practices, and ideas involve? What concepts might such an approach employ and how should these be understood? What are the political implications of taking such an approach – for religious studies and for the people studied therein? How should attention to race, class, gender, sexuality, capital, empire, and domination inform our assessment of religious traditions, institutions, and practices? The answers offered, while diverse in their methodologies, topics, and conclusions, are intended alike to be clear, precise, and historically attuned investigations of important subjects or figures in the study of religion and critical thought.
