Chapter Summary

This section of this book History, Time, Meaning, and Memory contains a list of contributors. The contributors are Nachman Ben-Yehuda, Peter Beyer, Kevin J. Christiano, Barbara Jones Denison, Rick Moore, Robert Prus, and William H. Swatos. As the sole religious studies scholar representing that complementary discipline in the book, Beyer points to the distinction between discourses in classical sociology about traditionally important topics such as religion. He identifies the lack of room for such discussion in modern societies where religion is seen as increasingly marginal and/or unimportant in the face of other social institutions, conditions and forces sweeping in anew.

Keywords: classical sociology; religion; modern societies
