Editorial Reviews

Review

"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

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of the most important undertakings in neuroscience and psychology is to try and achieve a rapprochement between different observations and descriptions of experience: to honor, respect and embrace physical, psychological and spiritual experiences without trying to reduce them to physical accidents.

This undertaking matters: how we see ourselves and our experiences has everything to do with the way in which we treat each other, the other inhabitants of our world and the planet itself. If we allow ourselves to believe the fiction that we live in a meaningless clockwork universe, there is little to restrain the rampant bullying, exploitation and disregard for life that we see all around us. If done well, books like this one can do a great deal to expand our worldview without falling into the traps of materialism or solipsism. And this book is very well done.

The editor - Kelly Bulkeley - teaches Religion and Psychology at San Francisco Theological Seminary and at Santa Clara University in California. His name has become well known in the arena of dream studies: he is a former President of the Association for the Study of Dreams and is the author of several books on dreams.

In Soul, Psyche, Brain he has enlisted a number of experts to contribute essays that address the relationships between neuroscience, religion and human nature.

The book highlights some important new developments in neuroscience that are generally not well known outside the field. Some may have a great many implications for cognition, consciousness, spirituality and link between the mind and body. Each has many practical implications, not only for how we see ourselves, but also for the neuroscience of ethics, morality and the law.
