Lecture #2 Notes 8-29-08 Zuckerman: - “experience” is the key tension point for sociologists who might not be religious… they think in terms of pattern and deviance and on a “social level” - Zuckerman: maybe if he was religious he could get a sense of faith and belief but he still wants to study religion sociologically and does this by looking at evidence (empirical data) about religion (not for or against religion) - Sociological phenomena - Not looking for proof about whether or not its true- looking at experience - [social level is different from individual level] - example of this tension between personally experiencing as a sociologist, vs. understanding sociologically - distinction between spirituality vs. religion - distinction between “achieved” person vs. “astrictive” religious person - “achieved”= generates knowledge, experience, understanding, and the pursuit of trying to claim something as an individual, looking at patterns of distinction and how people think, talk and do believe.
