Samuel Klausner

Emeritus Professor of Sociology


Research Interests: 

I have continued the lines of research in the Sociology of Religion and in Methodology-Philosophy of Science. Currently my long range project is a comparison of Hebrew and Muslim dietary systems as a window to their theological presuppositions. I am completing a methodological critique of wissenschaft Bible scholar’s work on interpreting a verse in the Books of exodus and Deuteronomy. That is to say, I am applying sociological thought to the clarification of classic documents.
