8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Todd A. Foose on January 14, 2007
Format: Paperback
The title chapter of the book makes the book as a whole worth a good read through, especially if you are in or are influenced by the field of Religious Studies. Already in the 1960's, Eliade was lamenting the over-specialization running rampant in many humanities fields which tended to make research about little more than an exercise in pointing out random curiosities rather than contributing to the ongoing cultural discourse of our own society. If you've ever felt like academia has grown too detached and irrelevant in recent decades, you'll find a kindred spirit in Eliade.

This is the second that my son requested. It was also VERY MEANINGFUL for him. I think the Author is about to bring out more work. I'm sure he will ask for the others. THANX !! tires4u@comcast.net
