This introductory text focuses on how and why new religions and cults arise. Special chapters on meme theory, Nietzsche, and Ken Wilber. The author argues that the human quest for meaning is inexhaustible and therefore new religions emerge to fulfill this need. Dr. Andrea Diem-Lane is a Professor of Philosophy and has taught courses in religion for nearly 25 years.
