The Believing Brain: Evolution, Neuroscience, And The Spiritual Instinct

June 2 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

$20 - $100

WORLD SCIENCE FESTIVAL 2018

 

God, they say, is in the details. But could God also be in our frontal lobes? Every culture from the dawn of humankind has imagined planes of existence beyond the reach of our senses, spiritual domains that shape our Earthly experiences. Why do beliefs of the fantastic hold such powerful sway over our species? Is there something in our evolutionary history that points to an answer? Does neuroscience hold the key? Straddling the gap between science and religion, Brian Greene is joined by renowned neuroscientists, anthropologists, and evolutionary biologists, to explore one of the most profound mysteries of our existence.

Moderator: Brian Greene
Participants: Lisa Barrett, Zoran Josipovic, Barbara J. King, Steven Pinker
