  • Madeea Axinciuc Associate Professor, University of Bucharest

Abstract

The study aims at a revision and a re-appraisal of Eliade’s allusive theory regarding the prerequisites and the necessity of reconfiguring the study of religion as a new integrative reasearch area relevant for the understanding of human mind. Special emphasis will be laid on highlighting, in a critical manner, the methodological framework envisaged by Eliade for the development of this new ‘Phenomenology of the Mind’, with a special focus on his approach indicating towards a ‘creative hermeneutics’.
Terms and concepts such as ‘perspectivism’, ‘creativity’, ‘scientific discourse’ are revisited in the light of the new methodological framework under discussion.
