On the Definition of “Religion”

Faith and Philosophy 3 (3):270-284 (1986)

Abstract

This essay is concerned with the definition of religion. This definition is developed within a context which recognizes the impossibility of value-neutrality in the definition of words. The definition proposed is applied to three complex borderline cases: Spinozism, Marxism,and economism or free-market ideology.
