Part of the Key Thinkers in the Study of Religion series
See all formats and editions

Peter L. Berger on Religion provides an overview and critical assessment of the work of one of the most influential sociologists of the 20th century. Situating Berger’s writings on religion and secularisation in the broader framework of social constructionism, the book argues that neither he nor the research influenced by him consistently followed the constructionist paradigm.

This assessment is informed by a close examination of The Sacred Canopy (1967), in particular.

The volume also offers a Berger-inspired constructionist framework for the study of religion. This book is an excellent resource for students and researchers interested in the intersection of religion and social theory.
