By: James B. Ashbrook (Author)

This book contains essays on brain, culture, and the human spirit that are basic to understanding the relation between religion and science. Each represent separate realms of inquiry, coming from physiology, anthropology, psychology, theology. Each author develops his own perspective as to the place of homo sapiens in the cosmos we know as earth. Together, however, they represent an emerging consensus. Contents: Introduction, James B. Ashbrook: On the Evolution of Three Mentalities, Paul D. MacLean: The Myth-Ritual Complex: A Biogenetic Structural Analysis, Eugene G. d'Aquili: Body, Brain, and Culture, Victor Turner: Psychology's Mentalist Paradigm and Religion/Science Tension, Roger W. Sperry: Brain Science and the Human Spirit, Colwyn Trevarthen: The Human Brain and Human Destiny: A Pattern for Old Brain Empathy with Emergence of Mind, James B. Ashbrook.
