Murphy (history of religions, U. of Alabama) examines Saussure's crisis of representation that comes from the arbitrary, not natural relationship between a signifier and what it signifies. He focuses on phenomenology and the notions of Nietzsche as he analyzes the academic study of religion, offering essays on William James's individualistic approach in The Varieties of Religious Experience, the concepts of essence and manifestation, the concept of development before and after Darwin, and the "transcendental pretense" as it relates to Eliade's brand of humanism. He offers a Nietzschean semiotics of religion, describing the problems of historical and genealogical identity within religious studies, restructures and redefines religion according to Nietzsche's approach to asymmetrical relations, and comes to a new semiotic theory of religion.
