Background/Biography

Von Stuckrad (1966) is a specialist in the pluralistic dynamics of European history of religion, with a special interest in the links between religion, philosophy of nature and the natural sciences. His numerous publications also include books on esotericism, astrology and mysticism as part of Western culture. He has a strong focus on methodological issues in the study of religion and in discursive approaches to religion and culture. Von Stuckrad has served in various functions in the American Academy of Religion and was president of the International Society for the Study of Religion, Nature and Culture. Currently he is the president of the Dutch Association for the Study of Religion (Nederlands Genootschap voor Godsdienstwetenschap).
