Description

Prepared in honor of E. Thomas Lawson, the essays in Religion as a Human Capacity represent diverse points of view in the study of religion today. Part I, Theoretical Studies, offers a broad range of cognitivist theoretical explorations, while Part II, Studies in Religious Behavior, presents cutting-edge applications of cognitive and other contemporary theories to religious data. This volume celebrates Lawson s critical contributions to cognitive studies of religion and the degree to which his ultimate goal of scholarship as a search for truth is matched by those who have been his colleagues and been influenced by him. Religion as a Human Capacity will be of interest to all those concerned with theory and method in the academic study of religion
