An introduction to the field of neuroreligion, this book pays homage to properly constituted religion and argues that a dignified religious demonstration, culturally compatible and intellectually qualified, can lead to God. With clarity, agility, and wisdom, this book presents topics as diverse as the role of the brain in the religious experience, the evolutionary value of beliefs, the contrast between spirituality and religion, the religious discrimination of women, and the institutionalization of that which is sacred.Una introducción al campo de la neuroreligión, este libro es un homenaje a la religión bien constituida y arguye que una manifestación religiosa digna, culturalmente compatible e intelectualmente cualificada, puede llevar a Dios.
