Heads up, Humboldt:
While the county's masking mandate has been lifted, Public Health is still strongly recommending masking indoors in public, social distancing and "avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces." COVID-19 is still with us, so be sure to check the protocols at event venues.

Lecture

William James on the Truth of Religious Experiences

When: Wed., July 1, 4 p.m. 2020

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.
