Some of the underlying questions addressed in the course include: (a) In what ways do belief systems reflect the socio-cultural environment in which they take place? (b) What are the implications of culture, power, and social inequities in the expression and interpretation of systems of belief? (c) How can we identify myth, rituals, magic, and religion within our own society and what can this tell us about our culture?Print this page
