Publisher's Summary

Neuroscience, Psychology, and Religion is the second title published in the new Templeton Science and Religion Series. In this volume, Malcolm Jeeves and Warren S. Brown provide an overview of the relationship between neuroscience, psychology, and religion that is academically sophisticated, yet accessible to the general listener.

The authors introduce key terms; thoroughly chart the histories of both neuroscience and psychology, with a particular focus on how these disciplines have interfaced religion through the ages; and explore contemporary approaches to both fields, reviewing how current science/religion controversies are playing out today. Throughout, they cover issues like consciousness, morality, concepts of the soul, and theories of mind. Their examination of topics like brain imaging research, evolutionary psychology, and primate studies show how recent advances in these areas can blend harmoniously with religious belief, since they offer much to our understanding of humanity's place in the world. Jeeves and Brown conclude their comprehensive and inclusive survey by providing an interdisciplinary model for shaping the ongoing dialogue.

Sure to be of interest to both academics and curious intellectuals, Neuroscience, Psychology, and Religion addresses important age-old questions and demonstrates how modern scientific techniques can provide a much more nuanced range of potential answers to those questions.

What the Critics Say

“The authors successfully weave together empirical research findings with philosophical and theological discussions to provide a clear and lucid account of this developing area of study. . . . Overall, this is an excellent book. I would fully recommend it to psychologists and psychiatrists and anyone with an interest in this area.” (British Journal of Psychiatry)

“I think every person interested in integration of Christian theology and psychotherapy should read this book. This is an excellent book... an excellent overview of cognitive neuroscience and physiological neuroscience in light of religion and spirituality.” (Journal of Psychaiatry and Theology)

    Story
    "A very good over view of the literature"

    This is a balanced overview of the literature on neuroscience as it pertains to faith. It is informative without being painfully technical and it references a wide range of relevant authors. For anyone interested in the subject, this is a good place to start.
