Books By Author Robert N. Bellah
Axial Age and Its Consequences, Hardback (October 2012)
This book makes the bold claim that intellectual sophistication was born worldwide during the middle centuries of the first millennium bce. From Axial Age thinkers we inherited a sense of the world as a place not just to experience but to investigate, envision, and alter. A variety of utopian visions emerged and led to both reform and repression.
Religion in Human Evolution, Hardback (September 2011)
This ambitious book probes our biological past to discover the kinds of lives that human beings have imagined were worth living. Bellah's theory goes deep into cultural and genetic evolution to identify a range of capacities (communal dancing, storytelling, theorizing) whose emergence made religious development possible in the first millennium BCE.
Habits of the Heart, Paperback (September 2007)
Offers an interpretation of American society. This book features a preface relating the arguments of the book both to the realities of American society and to the debate about the country's future.
