Religious responses to neuroscientific questions

(p.289) Chapter 20 Religious responses to neuroscientific questions

Paul Root Wolpe

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores the three areas where neuroscience challenges religion. First, in religion's ethical response to neuroscientific findings; secondly, how religion responds to the claims of some neuroscientists that current research refutes ideas such as ensoulment; and finally, through the field that has come to be known as neurotheology, the neuroscientific study of the religious impulse itself.
