Problems of religion are now being increasingly studied within sociology of religion as a separate study in science. It is social and political sciences that now draw distinct lines beneficial both for science and religion. Sociology of religion aims to study not only types of human rationality and emotional and psychological conditions, but the whole “power of life” of a person manifesting itself in socio-economic environment, in search for meaning in life, his acts conditioned by politics, science, culture, and, even, everyday situations.
