A Response to James Spickard on “Alternative Sociologies of Religion: Through Non-Western Eyes”
by Jonathan Tuckett
This week we’re doing something a little bit different. Instead of a written response to the podcast we have a video response instead:
For my take on James Spickard’s phenomenology see: “Prolegomena to a Philosophical Phenomenology of Religion: a critique of sociological phenomenology”. Method and Theory in the Study of Religion (forthcoming).
And of course, do check out his new book: Alternative Sociologies of Religion: Through non-Western Eyes (2017).
If you’re interested in the topic of public sociology you can find Burawoy’s announcement of “public sociology” at the American Sociological Association conference, along with various responses, in special editions of The American Sociological Review 70, Soziale Welte 56 and The British Journal of Sociology 56 (all 2005).
This is all proof of format. So ignore the fact that I very quickly forget to look directly at the camera and the editing is a little bit choppy! If you enjoyed this – or think it’s a horrible idea – we want to hear from you, tell us what you think in the comments below!
