"Churches, Morals,  Symbols"

Abstract: Among the things that Tylor neglected were the role of religious institutions in the ethical life of their adherents and the centrality of religion as a source of moral ideas. He also says very little about one of the most evident features of much religion, which is the place of symbolism in ritual and belief. These lacunae were filled in by Durkheim and by Weber, whose work we'll explore in the second lecture. 

All lectures will take place virtually
