Overview

Written for the general public, God Soul Mind Brain explores the controversial relationship between science and religion by first dismissing the "science versus religion"debate as outdated and unnecessary. The cutting-edge field of social neuroscience explains how our perceptions of our own consciousness, of other people's minds, and of spirits and gods depend on machinery in the brain that evolved to make us socially intelligent animals. In clear prose without technical jargon, Graziano discusses his and others' findings in this 20-years-old field of study, and the implications for human spirituality and religion, and God, and how these elements relate to the science of the brain, Graziano presents an entirely new view of religion and science.
