Elements of the Science of Religion, vol. 1 1896–1898

Cornelius Petrus Tiele

Summary

Table of Contents

Abstract

Elements of Science of Religion: Morphological provides Tiele’s definition of religion and establishes a philosophical framework for the study of religion as a scientific discipline. Religion is defined not as the outward expressions of forms and rituals but as the internalized beliefs in the ‘superhuman’ which motivate a response. The work also charts the progression of religion and argues that is always multiplying in its diversities while simultaneously experiencing constant simplification.
