Religion and Worldview is a graduate-level introductory course to the anthropology of religion and worldview. It compares and contrasts a range of approaches to religion and worldview, and examines a range of religious systems worldwide, including folk varieties of the major universal religions, and the worldviews that underlie them. The readings, discussion and personal research components are intended to guide students to examine the roles worldview ideologies and concrete factors such as subsistence, kinship and social and political organization play in shaping religion, including the Western practice of Christianity.
