Chapter Summary

This inaugural editorial of this book is published in journal Method and Theory in the Study of Religion (MTSR) 1:1 (1989): 1 and reprinted in the book. MTSR arises out of the observation that there is no journal exclusively devoted to the discussion and debate of issues concerning method and theory in the study of religion. But to the extent that academic study is characterized by the on-going questioning of its own premises and presuppositions, and since fields of research are never, or at least never should be, relaxed concerning methods of study and theories about the focus of study, the authors believe this journal addresses a crucial component of the study of religion. MTSR is a forum for discussion and debate; therefore, they give priority to papers, and shorter critical notes which respond directly to material published in MTSR.
