Description
Summary:This volume considers the broader framework of “cognition and culture” with a programmatic agenda. Most of its articles result from an international symposium on “Cognitive Science and the Study of Religious Experience: A Working Symposium on Theory and Method”, held at the University of Vermont in 1998. Concise and profound outlines of relevant theories of P. Boyer, d’Aquili/ Newberg, D. Sperber and V.S. Ramanchandra who are absent from the volume as authors are delivered in Andresen’s Introduction to illustrate the historical spread of cognitive sciences within the science of religion. She concludes by asking for new and diversified methodologies for studying religion.
