Is CAM religious? The methodological problems of categorizing complementary and alternative medicine in the study of religion.


Barbara, Zeugin (2017). Is CAM religious? The methodological problems of categorizing complementary and alternative medicine in the study of religion. Bulletin for the Study of Religion, 46(1):6-8.

Abstract

Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) has become a central research field in the social sciences as well as religious studies. The scholarly interest often focuses on the relatedness of medicine and religion and many scholars implicitly define and categorize CAM as religious. This paper, however, seeks to discuss the methodological problems that come along with the categorization of CAM as religious.
