Book News Annotation:
Follows the development of the term phenomenology of religion from its first occurrence in the history of ideas, looking at the work of three early exponents of the phenomenology of religion, and at some of the ways in which the concept has been understood in recent literature within the field of religion. The author demonstrates that phenomenological approaches to religion are a-historical, a- theological, and anti-reductive studies of religion. Of interest to scholars of religion and philosophy.
