2nd ERB Project Workshop: Wittgenstein, Nature, and Religion

July 29, 2020

Wittgenstein, Nature, and Religion

 

2nd ERB Project Workshop

 

Nova Institute of Philosophy (IFILNOVA)

Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities – Nova University of Lisbon (NOVA FCSH)


29 July 2020

 

Is it right to think, as Daniel Dennett does, of religion as a natural phenomenon? Is religion to be explained in terms of evolutionary theory and cognitive science? Or should we perhaps explain it in cultural, economic, or philosophical terms? Are each of these kinds of explanations of religion legitimate? Are they in competition with each other? These are the kinds of questions that we hope to shed some light on in our Zoom workshop by examining cognitive science of religion and naturalistic understandings of religion in the light of Wittgenstein’s work.
