Neurotheology: How Science Can Enlighten Us about Spirituality Tell a Friend about this Course

Religion is often cast in opposition to science. Yet both are deeply rooted in the inner workings of the human brain. What might brain scans of people in prayer, in meditation, or under the influence of psychoactive substances teach us about religious and spiritual beliefs? Are religion and spirituality reducible to neurological processes, or might there be aspects that, at least for now, transcend scientific claims? Dr. Andrew Newberg's newest book, Neurotheology, How Science Can Enlighten Us About Spirituality, explores the latest findings of neurotheology, the multidisciplinary field linking neuroscience with religious and spiritual phenomena.
