Beyond belief; essays on religion in a post-traditional world by Robert N Bellah( Book )

52 editions published between 1970 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Religion is still something of a stepchild in the American University. In some major universities there is no department devoted to this aspect of human experience. In others the department is only uncertainty institutionalized and deals with but a fraction of man's religiousness. In a few places excellent programs exist that point the way to what can be done more generally. Like so many others I have come to the field of religion from a particular discipline, in my case, sociology. But I have in recent year become increasingly impatient with the sociology of religion as an isolated perspective. To be genuinely fruitful, it seems to me, the sociology of religion must join other approaches to the actual phenomena of religion. The study of religion seems at the moment to attract a number of mavericks and wanderers in the academy and I am grateful for the opportunities I have had in pursuing it to move outside the established structures and across the usual divisions of the university

The Robert Bellah reader by Robert N Bellah( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How does the world we now inhabit shape our sense of who we are? In these seminal essays, combining comparative social analysis with cultural interpretation, Robert Bellah crosses conventional divides between fact and value, knowledge and faith, to shed light on the meaning of modernity by grasping it within the whole history of the human species. He probes many of our deepest social and cultural quandaries, quandaries that put modernity itself, with all its immense achievements, at moral risk. Through the practical self-understanding such inquiry spurs, Bellah shows how we may share responsibility for the world we have made and seek to heal it."--Back cover
The Axial Age and its consequences by Robert N Bellah( Book )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first classics in human history-the early works of literature, philosophy, and theology to which we have returned throughout the ages-appeared in the middle centuries of the first millennium BCE. The canonical texts of the Hebrew scriptures, the philosophical writings of Plato and Aristotle, the Analects of Confucius and the Daodejing, the Bhagavad Gita and the teachings of the Buddha-all of these works came down to us from the compressed period of history that Karl Jaspers memorably named the Axial Age. In The Axial Age and Its Consequences, Robert Bellah and Hans Joas make the bold claim that intellectual sophistication itself was born worldwide during this critical time. Across Eurasia, a new self-reflective attitude toward human existence emerged, and with it an awakening to the concept of transcendence. From Axial Age thinkers we inherited a sense of the world as a place not just to experience but to investigate, envision, and alter through human thought and action. Bellah and Joas have assembled diverse scholars to guide us through this astonishing efflorescence of religious and philosophical creativity. As they explore the varieties of theorizing that arose during the period, they consider how these in turn led to utopian visions that brought with them the possibility of both societal reform and repression. The roots of our continuing discourse on religion, secularization, inequality, education, and the environment all lie in Axial Age developments. Understanding this transitional era, the authors contend, is not just an academic project but a humanistic endeavor."--Jacket

Habits of the heart : individualism and commitment in American life by Robert N Bellah( Book )

55 editions published between 1985 and 2008 in English and Italian and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Habits of the Heart, first published in 1985, rapidly became one of the most widely discussed interpretations of American society in the twentieth century, joining a small body of pivotal studies such as Middletown and The Lonely Crowd. Much of what Habits described, and which resonated so widely in the public consciousness, is even more evident ten years later. Meanwhile, the authors' antidote to the American sickness - a quest for democratic community that draws on our diverse civic and religious traditions - has contributed to a vigorous scholarly and popular debate. In their new introduction, the authors relate the argument of their book to both the current realities of American society and the growing debate about the country's future
