Signifikansi Pendekatan Fenomenologi terhadap Dinamika Religious Studies: Kajian atas Pemikiran Dauglas Allen
AbstractResearches in religious studies?as well as Islamic studies?often use
approaches that lead to simplistic and reductionist conclusions. This indeed runs counter
to the substance of pluralism which is rich in its symbol and intensional representation.
This article is an effort to describe the significance of the phenomenological approach to
the study of religion by using the works of Douglas Allen as the main entrance. In doing
so, it tries to understand religious data from the epoche, eidetic and verstehen perspectives
in a way that just and balanced conclusion may be reached.
