Zoom webinar: www.humboldtstate.zoom.us/s/98472200620 Are religious experiences simply pathological delusions, or are they insights into the divine ground of all existence? Is the belief in god simply an irrational superstition, or is it as well founded as our belief in beauty or justice? How do we decide? In this lecture we'll investigate the philosopher William James' answers to these questions and how his answers relate to some contemporary research into the exciting new field of neurotheology. With Benjamin Shaeffer, Department of Philosophy, HSU.
