Wittgenstein, Nature, and Religion
Is it right to think, as Daniel Dennett does, of religion as a natural phenomenon? Is religion to be explained in terms of evolutionary theory and cognitive science? Or should we perhaps explain it in cultural, economic, or philosophical terms? Are each of these kinds of explanations of religion legitimate? Are they in competition with each other? These are the kinds of questions that we hope to shed some light on in our Zoom workshop by examining cognitive science of religion and naturalistic understandings of religion in the light of Wittgenstein’s work.
Attendance is free of charge. Please contact Robert Vinten at firstname.lastname@example.org for details of the Zoom workshop if you would like to attend.
