"Essential interpreting for the religious, the agnostic, and the atheist. In tackling the query of the spiritual mind, Graziano is respectful, honest, and scientifically believable. this would also be a massive Book."—Sam Wang, writer of Welcome in your Brain
"A superbly crafted, tightly scripted account of ways the far-flung legions of the brain's neurons provide upward thrust to social expertise and our notions of soul, faith and God."—Christof Koch, writer of The Quest for Consciousness
"Lucid and fascinating. . . . strikes with velocity and humor."—Philip Johnson-Laird, writer of Mental Models
"Do we all know the origins of Gods and ghosts? This well-written e-book makes the daring case that new discoveries in social neuroscience can light up human religious experience."—Terry Sejnowski, PhD, Salk Institute/UC San Diego
Writing for most of the people, Michael S. A. Graziano explores the debatable dating among technological know-how and faith, first brushing aside the "science versus faith" debate as outmoded. The state of the art box of social neuroscience explains how our perceptions of our personal attention, of different minds, and of spirits and gods rely on equipment within the mind that developed to make us socially clever animals. In transparent prose with no technical jargon, Graziano discusses his and others' findings during this twenty-year-old technological know-how and the results for human spirituality and religion.
