DEFINITIONS: IDENTIFY AND EXPLAIN THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE CHOSEN TERMS
5 (X 2 marks each = 10 marks) from a choice of 8 - the 8 will be chosen from the following list:
Functional definitions
o Identify religion not in terms what religion is, but in terms of what religion does.
o Instead of focusing on some characteristic which all religions are purported to
possess, functionalist definitions call anything religion that performs the function
which the definer attributes to religion.
o Defining religion in terms of the super-empirical can also lead to the inclusion
under the rubric of religion phenomena that are not commonly regarded as
religious.
o Might also exclude phenomena many people would take to be religion.
o Emile Durkheim identified the core function of religion as performing the social
task of separating the sacred from the profane.
o A more cognitive approach, asserting that the essential element in religion is the
pro- isio of a eopassig sste of eaig or the ailit to relate
man to the ultimate conditions of his existee.
o Examples:
Wilhelm Wundt (1886): All ideas and feelings are religious that refer to
an ideal existence.
Robert Bellah (1964): Religion [is] a set of symbolic forms and acts which
relate man to the ultimate conditions of his existence.
Ward Goodenough (1966): [Religion refers to] practices and beliefs
associated with the achievement of an ideal state of being.
Family resemblance definitions
o Beso “aler proposes a fail reselae approah.
o To qualify as a religion, a phenomenon must have several, but not necessarily all,
of the harateristis usuall assoiated ith the religious fail.
o Some examples of family resemblance approaches to defining religion, are:
William Alston (1967)
Belief in supernatural beings (gods).

Ritual acts focused on sacred objects.
A moral code believed to be sanctioned by the gods.
