This is a monograph which aims to build a foundation for the development of a more scientifically based study of religion. This book elucidates the conceptual issues in religious studies by utilizing the tools of philosophical analysis. The academic discipline of religious studies is rich in conceptual systems that derive from ethnography, history, psychology, sociology and media studies. Like other fields of research in cultural studies, religious studies adopt various theoretical resources in eclectic ways and, by the same token, import numerous conceptual issues from these adjacent fields. The discipline of religious studies investigates conceptual systems and cultural meaning systems that postulate supernatural entities. Whether the object of the study is religious behaviour or religious belief, sacred texts or buildings, the ultimate goal of the research is the conceptual system that is conveyed by the material data. There are concepts and conceptual systems at both sides: at the side of religious studies, and at the side of religious culture (cultural knowledge, behaviour and artifacts). The book will provide interesting case studies for philosophers of science, especially those interested in the humanities and social research.
