Produktbeschreibung
Ritual and ritualization have become central concepts in cultural and social studies. This book shows why it is productive neither to equate ritual and religion, nor to simply abandon the concept of religion. Conceiving of religion as communicative action allows ritual to be understood as a form of listening to the world and as a form of changing the world. The book's primary intention is not to make a contribution to theory, but rather to demonstrate - through case studies for representative fields of a wide variety of rituals - the fruitfulness of an approach that links elements of classical theories of ritual to more recent concepts of religion and to the basic idea of the mutual constitution of subjects and objects.
