About this book

Soul, Psyche, Brain is a collection of essays that address the relationships between neuroscience, religion and human nature. Kelly Bulkeley's book highlights some startling new developments in neuroscience that have many people rethinking spirituality, the mind-body connection, and cognition in general. Soul, Psyche, Brain explores questions like: what can knowledge about the neurological activities of the brain tell us about consciousness? And what are the practical implications of brain-mind science for ethics and moral reasoning?

Reviews

"Soul, Psyche, Brain has successfully re-set the starting point for any serious interdisciplinary conversation on the topic of religion. By so doing, this book at once updates all parties, levels the intellectual playing field, and lays open new possibilities for collaborative research-both reflective and empirical-on the topic of religion across a broad range of disciplines." - Nina P. Azari, Assistant Professor, Department of Psychology, University of Hawaii at Hilo "Bulkeley provides a unique and valuable resource reporting from the cutting edges of the encounter between neuroscience and religion. Fields as diverse as emotion and dream studies, complexity theory, spiritual development, Christian and non-Christian theology - and more - contribute to the ferment. Those working in any or all of these areas will find here resources to stretch their mind." - Carol Rausch Albright, author of The Humanizing Brain: Where Religion and Neuroscience Meet
