  8. Putting cognition and culture back together again: religion in mind and society

    The cognitive science of religion tries to explain how human mental architecture canalizes the spread of cultural ideas. Coevolutionary theories aim at explaining the cultural stability of ideas and practices by constructing models of social behavior. I try to show that both research programs provide useful insights for the construction of mechanical explanations of the mental representation and transmission of religious ideas. Combining cognitive predispositions and their expression in forms of social behavior paves way for a more integrated explanatory framework.

  9. Cognitive science of religion: State-of-the-art

    This article presents an introduction to the cognitive science of religion. It shows that CSR began with original theoretical approaches within the human sciences and has subsequently developed into a more empirical, interdisciplinary field of study. The field is growing rapidly with the appearance of several centers and projects. The most important theories, findings, and criticisms are presented. Also the various centers of study and recent projects are described.
