The anthropologist Robin Horton is widely regarded as one of the most creative and critical thinkers of his generation. This collection of some of his classic papers on African religion, written between l960 and l990, is also a wide-ranging enquiry into religious thought, particularly its relationship to aesthetic and scientific thought. Horton criticises recent orthodoxies in this area, and instead proposes an 'Intellectualist' alternative which stresses similarities between the religious and the scientific.
