  • Religion and development: Introduction
    • For secularisation theory, modernisation undermines religion.
      • The importance of science and technology in economic development and the rational worldview on which they depend, are seen as destroying belief in the supernatural.
    • Religion may contribute to development too (like Weber and his belief of the protestant ethic.)
    • More recently, sociologists have examined what role religion may play in development in today's globalised world.
