RELIGIOUS DETERMINISM: AN ANALYSIS

Dr. Jasleen Kewlani

Abstract


Human life has always been complicated due to his intervention and the role of the multiple factors. Those factors have also been an inevitable part of his life, which could neither be altered nor be ignored for determining the other courses of  life.  Those  factors  are   economy, religion, political structures, culture, and regions of survival, traditional influences and social change. Religion is one such domain of human life which has been a very strong force behind human activities and human behaviour. From the primitive societies of the world to the most contemporary ones, it has never been an ignored or the sidelined, rather it has been leading the other domains in many cases and has been determining the other aspects of life and their tracks and routes. This article aims at establishing   and   exploring the concept ‘Religious Determinism’, resulting into shaping, designing and redesigning of the human life and its curriculum. The world’s  most  popular  religions  and  the world’s most subjugated religions have always been news  and  on  the  surface  of  the  global discussions. The reason  is  that  religion  in  such  cases  has  influenced  and  also affected the human life dominantly and in totality in many cases. Religious terrorism, religious violence, religious conflicts have often resulted into drastic consequences, which has never been compensated due to their harshest possible nature and impact.. The social processes like urbanization, globalization, westernization, modernization and sanskritization have surely brought about a big social change in all the aspects of human life including religion also but still the much part of religion is stuck to social static  explored and conceptualized by August Comte. The social sciences and the related research can for sure not give solution to all the social issues but the most crucial moral obligation on their part is undertaking a complete exploration of the issues so that a platform of resolution can be rendered to on the other ends.
