Themes in the Anthropology of Religion and Secularism

Term: Fall 2008

Subject Code: GANT

Course Number: 6358

This seminar examines three interlocking themes: 1) the conceptualization of religion itself as a distinctly *human* phenomenon within the anthropological tradition, 2) the role of notions of individual and collective autonomy in modern secularism, and 3) religious practices that trouble any moral psychology in which human autonomy is a paramount value.
