Item Description...
This work summarizes and extends advances in the cognitive study of religion since the 1990s. Its aim is to use empirical research from psychology and anthropology to understand different components of religious belief, ritual and experience. The book examines cognitive dimensions of religion within a naturalistic view of culture, while preserving a respect for the phenomenology of religion and drawing together teachers of religion, psychologists of religion and cognitive scientists. Contributors focus on phenomena such as belief-fixation and transmission; attributions of agency; anthropomorphizing; counterintuitive religious representations; the well-formedness of religious rituals; links between religious representations and emotions; and the development of God concepts. The work encourages greater interdisciplinary linkages between scholars from different fields and should be of interest to researchers in anthropology, psychology, sociology, history, philosophy, and cognitive science and also to the general reader interested in religion and science.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A new paradigm for religion and psychological studies?  Jan 4, 2002
This is an anthology for scholars interested in cognitive psychology as applied to the study of religion. It requires some familiarity with the field, and a few of the essays are very very dense. Unlike most previous attempts to link psychology and religion or spirituality, this avoids personality theory and clinical counseling models, and focuses on the research in cognitive psych that has been done over the last few decades. The application to religious studies depends on philosophical choices about methods, definitions and concepts. Not all of these will make specialists in religious studies happy, since some seem to ignore developments in that field over the last several decades. For a comparison, look to "Religion and Psychological Studies: Mapping the Terrain" edited by Parsons and Jonte-Pace, which is a quite different account of "the field."
My reason for giving "Religion in Mind" 3 stars is that I just do not know if this is the wave of the future for this area, or one more attempt to create a new scholarly field out of an intrinsically undisciplined set of interests and concerns.
