Evolution of Religion

I’ll be off to an International Conference on the Evolution of Religion later this week. It should be interesting. The speakers are largely psychologists, anthropologists, cognitive scientists etc. with a foot in evolutionary biology, plus some biologists and religious studies types. Then there’s a smaller array of theologians and philosophers who’ll comment on the first group’s research. Daniel Dennett is one of the big-shot presenters. I think I’m the only physics-type giving a talk, though naturally it’s not directly about physics. (It’s about the version of physicalism that tends to attract us physics-types and how the evolution of religion fits into that picture.)

I expect I’ll comment on what went on once I’m back. We’ll see.
