The Implied Spider, Updated with a New Preface: Politics and Theology in Myth (American Lectures on the History of Religions)

Wendy Doniger, "The Implied Spider, Updated with a New Preface: Politics and Theology in Myth (American Lectures on the History of Religions)"
Publisher: Co....ia University Press | ISBN: 0231156421 | 2010 | PDF | 253 pages | 3.4 MB


Wendy Doniger's foundational study is both modern in its engagement with a diverse range of religions and refreshingly classic in its transhistorical, cross-cultural approach. By responsibly analyzing patterns and themes across context, Doniger reinvigorates the comparative reading of religion, tapping into a wealth of narrative traditions, from the instructive tales of Judaism and Christianity to the moral lessons of the Bhagavad Gita. She extracts political meaning from a variety of texts while respecting the original ideas of each. A new preface confronts the difficulty of contextualizing the comparison of religions as well as controversies over choosing subjects and positioning arguments, and the text itself is expanded and updated throughout.
