It will explore critical questions about belief systems including the roles and functions of belief systems, the ways changes in belief systems take place and the influence of belief systems on individual ,societal and institutional levels. In many societies, the beliefs of supernatural beings and forces are indispensable to the well being of communities. In relation to this and looking especially at the experiences of societies in Borneo, this course will examine the influence of contemporary and indigenous beliefs in present day activities.

(Kursus ini membincangkan pendekatan klasik dalam memberi takrif tentang sistem kepercayaan dan memahami peranannya dalam masyarakat. Ia akan menganalisis persoalan-persoalan berhubung dengan kepercayaan, termasuk peranan dan fungsinya, corak perubahan yang berlaku dan pengaruhnya terhadap individu, masyarakat dan institusi.

Sehubugungan dengan itu dan terutamanya melihat kepada pengalaman masyarakat di Borneo, kursus ini akan menelitikan pengaruh kepercayaan kontemporari dan pribumi di dalam aktiviti kehidupan kini.)
