(2009) Methodology and Meaning in the Cognitive Science of Religion

Mark Addis

Abstract


Lecture in Bergen 2009, Jun. 11. This talk investigates philosophical questions about methodological approaches and meaning in the cognitive science of religion. The theoretical parameters for properly understanding the claims of the cognitive science of religion need to be examined so that the empirical value of these claims is fully articulated and unhelpful metaphysics shorn. An appropriate philosophical account of meaning and symbolization for the cognitive science of religion will be developed.
