Working Group on Religion and Cognitive Science Spring 2009 Event

Please join us for a panel discussion of Mark Graves’ new work Mind, Brain, and the Elusive Soul: Human Systems of Cognitive Science and Religion (Ashgate 2008). In advance praise of the book Philip Clayton has said, “Mark Graves here crafts an intriguing synthesis of systems theory, cognitive science, and emergence theory in this quest to preserve the category of ‘soul’ for a scientific age.” Aimed at both theorists and practitioners working at the intersection of religion, theology, and science, this book aims to “describe the ‘more’ that does not reduce to the parts” of the human soul.

Friday, March 13, 1:30-3:30 pm
Institute of Buddhist Studies
2140 Durant Avenue, Berkeley

Panelists:
Richard Payne, Institute of Buddhist Studies
