Description
xi, 142 pages ; 22 cm; Portions delivered as the Drummond Lectures, University of Stirling, March 1985.; Religious studies and the western mind -- The political implications of religious studies -- The intellectual implications of religious studies -- Christianity and nationalism -- Resurgence and identity in three faiths -- The dynamics of religious and political change: Illustrations from South Asia -- The future of religions -- A global ethic arising from the epistemology of religious and similar value-systems.; Niniam Smart believes that the modern study of religion should occur in the context of a radical reappraisal of our educational system. This is a worldview analysis of religion appropriate to today's global city. It attacks narrowness whether found in Western philosophy or Christian theology, and argues for a disestablishmentarian stance.;
