Current Approaches in the Cognitive Science of Religion by Ilkka Pyysiainen Current Approaches in the Cognitive Science of Religion, Hardback (July 2002)

This cognitive study of religion challenges the supernatural views of religion and the view that psychological theories are irrelevant for the understanding of religion as a cultural system. It is the interplay between the two that creates religion as a phenomenon.
