Overview

The author believes that—in the course of history—few forces are more powerful than religion and therefore religion is worthy of rigorous study. In his 1901 work, Jastrow tackles fundamental questions about the origin, character, and classification of religion, as well as ethics, philosophy, psychology, mythology, and more—attempting to place in the hand of the reader a tool with which to begin a scientific study of religion.
