E.E. Evans-Pritchard (1901-1973)

 

"Witchcraft

 

explains the

 

coincidence of

 

two

 

happenings."

 


 

Clifford Geertz

 

?Any chronic failure of one's explanatory apparatus, the

 

complex of received culture patterns (common sense,

 

science, philosophical speculation, myth) one has for

 

mapping the empirical world, to explain things which cry out

 

for explanation tends to lead to a deep disquiet?a

 

tendency rather more widespread and a disquiet rather

 

deeper than we have sometimes supposed since the

 

pseudoscience view of religious belief was, quite rightfully,

 

deposed.?

 

?Religion as a Cultural System?

 


 

Clifford Geertz

 

Religion is:

 

(1)a system of symbols

 

(2)which acts to establish powerful, pervasive and longlasting moods and motivations in men (sic)

 

(3)by formulating conceptions of a general order of

 

existence and

 

(4)clothing these conceptions with such an aura of factuality

 

that

 

(5)the moods and motivations seem uniquely realistic.

 


 

Worldview

 


 

Modern worldview: the culture of ?no

 

culture?

 


 

The ?Clash of fundamentalisms?

 


 

Universalist explanations for

 

fundamentalism

 


 

Anthony Wallace on stages of revitalization (cited in

 

Beeman reading):

 

1.Social change produces cultural tension among members

 

of society

 

2.The cultural tension produces an attempt to

 

accommodate, leading to distortion and change in social

 

patterns, causing social disruption

 

3.As a response to cultural tension, fundamentalism

 

emerges in the form of an orthodox restatement of cultural

 

patterns. This new doctrine is spread through evangelism,

 

often through the office of one or more charismatic figures.

 


 

Secularism

 


 

Toleration

 

The care of souls cannot

 

belong to the civil

 

magistrate, because his

 

power consists only in

 

outward force; but true and

 

saving religion consists in

 

the inward persuasion of

 

the mind, without which

 

nothing can be acceptable

 

to God. And such is the

 

nature of the

 

understanding, that it

 

cannot be compelled to the

 

belief of anything by

 

outward force.

 

A Letter Concerning

 


 

John Locke (16321704)
