Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This study examines the question of religion, and looks into it as phenomenon and con- cept. This will be examined through an analysis of different discourses on religion. To obtain a wide perspective on the concept, four different theorists from different fields including psycholo- gy, sociology, and philosophy are analyzed and compared. Subsequently their respective ideas of the concept and phenomenon of religion are discussed. In this discussion, encyclopedia definitions of religion from the above-mentioned fields are involved, to support and go more thoroughly into our results. In conclusion, the concept of religion and the range of this concept is defined by the way the phenomenon of religion is characterized in the three fields.
