dc.description.abstractThe paper begins by documenting the meanings the labels 'Hinduism' and 'Taoism' carry locally and highlights the complexities and ambiguities in discussions that invoke them. I then present data which demonstrate significant points of convergence between these two religious traditions, viewed as 'ethnic religions' and asserted to be 'different' in the Singaporean context. The turn to the organisational domain is instructive in revealing how 'Hindu' and 'Taoist' institutions have talked about their respective religions in the public sphere. This focus allows me to highlight overlaps in the two sets of discourses, to ask why these affinities should exist and to reflect on the sociological implications of such a phenomenon. © 2008 The National University of Singapore.
