Edgewalker: Kripal and Davis
I’m writing a textbook now on how to compare religions. I open by claiming that the comparative study of religion is the most exciting, important, radical, dangerous, and promising thing currently going on in the university, and that most of the world’s problems boil down to a failure of individuals, communities, and cultures to compare — that is, to balance human difference and sameness — in sufficiently nuanced, just, and beautiful ways. I mean that. I am not exaggerating in the least.
