Religion, Discourse, and Society : Towards a Discursive Sociology of Religion, Paperback / softback Book

Religion, Discourse, and Society : Towards a Discursive Sociology of Religion Paperback / softback

Part of the Routledge Studies in Religion series

Paperback / softback

Description

This book focuses on the utility and application of discourse theory and discourse analysis in the sociological study of religious change.

It presents an outline of what a ‘discursive sociology of religion’ looks like and brings scholarly attention to the role of language and discourse as a significant component in contemporary processes of religious change.

Marcus Moberg addresses the concept of discourse and its main meta-theoretical underpinnings and discusses the relationship between discourse and ‘religion’ in light of previous research.

The chapters explore key notions such as secularism and public religion as well as the ideational and discursive impact of individualism and market society on the contemporary Western religious field.

In addition to providing scholars with a thorough understanding and appreciation of the analytic utility of discourse theory and analysis in the sociological study of religious change, the book offers a cohesive and systematized framework for actual empirical analysis.
