RELI2015 Approaches to the Study of Religion (3 units)
- Medium of Instruction:
This course gives students an introduction to different approaches to the study of religion – internal approaches (textual, hermeneutical and theological studies), perspectival approaches (anthropological, psychological, philosophical, sociological and historical), and religious dialogue. It aims to equip the students with an ability of understanding religion and quasi-religion from different angles. The course will evaluate religious cases through combinations of approaches. It helps the students to develop a multi-disciplinary apparatus of analysing what is happening in typical religious acts.
