How should a student approach the study of religion?
Dr. Ninian Smart discusses the importance of religion in learning about the world. He calls the study of religion the exploration of religion and notes that this is important even for those looking to go into technical jobs. Religion helps us understand all subjects from politics to our economy. Dr. Smart cites examples of how often ignorance of religion and culture have led to failed political policies.
