Segal characterised the discipline as "a subject matter" that it "open to many approaches", and thus it "does not require either a distinctive method or a distinctive explanation to be worthy of disciplinary status." [4] Different scholars operating in the field have different interests and intentions; some for instance seek to defend religion, while others seek to explain it away, and others wish to use religion as an example with which to prove a theory of their own. [5] Some scholars of religious studies are interested in primarily studying the religion to which they belong. [6] Scholars of religion have argued that a study of the subject is useful for individuals because it will provide them with knowledge that is pertinent in inter-personal and professional contexts within an increasingly globalised world. [7] It has also been argued that studying religion is useful in appreciating and understanding sectarian tensions and religious violence. [8] Throughout the history of religious studies, there have been many attempts to define the term "religion". [9] Many of these have been monothetic, seeking to determine a key, essential element which all religions share, which can be used to define "religion" as a category, and which must be necessary in order for something to be classified as a "religion". [10] There are two forms of monothetic definition; the first are substantive, seeking to identify a specific core as being at the heart of religion, such as a belief in a God or gods, or an emphasis on power. [11] The second are functional, seeking to define "religion" in terms of what it does for humans, for instance defining it by the argument that it exists to assuage fear of death, unite a community, or reinforce the control of one group over another. [11] Other forms of definition are polythetic, producing a list of characteristics that are common to religion Blind Faith: Joan Waste Derby's Martyr.

The Diminishing Divide: Religion's Changing Role in American Politics

In developing the ability to think both empathetically and critically about religious claims, students engage two ways of knowing: (1) an ordered knowledge concerning the origin, evolution, teachings and practices of select religious traditions; and (2) a panoramic sense of the meaning of religion, the complexities of religious experiences and their multiple expressions, and the consequent broadening of our own understanding of the world, of its peoples, and of ourselves American Commencement: Graduation Speeches that Inspired a New Nation.

Rick Santorum, who in an address challenging John F. Kennedy’s historic speech affirming separation of church and state, charged that Kennedy emboldened secularists who want a public square “cleansed of all religious wisdom and the voice of religious people of all faiths.” Santorum warned against a movement that he said is “repressing or banishing people of faith from having a say in government.” These all-too-typical charges echo the claims made by some Religious Right groups that Democrats who opposed confirmation of some of President Bush’s judicial nominees were trying to keep people of faith off the courts Morals, Ethics and Religions.

Hence the scholar of religion studies and teaches religion without advocating or denouncing the object of study (an approach known as methodological agnosticism, meaning that the types of tools, or methods, that scholars use prevent them from ever taking a stand on the truth of the thing being studied--what they may think in their personal life may be another thing, however); the scholar's approach, then, seeks to ask questions about and find answers to those human behaviors categorized as religious Beyond the Persecuting Society: Religious Toleration Before the Enlightenment.
