Chapter Summary

This chapter diagnosis that prompting the marginalized group to continually reinvent itself in response to changes in the dominant group, North American Association for the Study of Religion (NAASR)'s success has, it seems, produced a degree of complacency that results in its now ambiguous place in the field. It proposes that NAASR re-organize around the precisely defined key terms in its journal's title, method and theory, to enable those who wish to scrutinize the tools scholars use to go about their work. A NAASR panel is either a scrutiny of a specific scholarly situation and practice or a naturalistic explanation of religion's causes or origin, but surely not both.

Keywords: NAASR; religion
