Not only for anthropologists, but for any free thinking individual. 27. September 2010
Von george korolog - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is an absolutely marvelous book to challenge your thinking not only about the cognitive development of religion and its rituals, both modern and in the mind of man in pre-history, but a well documented book on the tremendous divisions and dangers inherent in religions that are based on belief in the supernatural realm. Is morality evolutionary and do the building blocks of morality pre-date humanity? Why does the teaching of supernatural belief lead us to fanaticism? How do religions consistently revamp their interpretations of their "revealed truths" in order to maintain control of their message. In theology, truth is always post hoc. I could go on and on with all of the valuable information and insight that Dr. Lewis presents, but if you have an interest in understanding evolution, religion and anthropology, I recommend this book highly.

Fascinating Read!! 28. Dezember 2011
Von Michael F. Drummy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I originally borrowed this book from my local library but halfway through it I knew I was going to want to purchase it so I could re-read it and use it as a resource in the future. I have a PhD in historical theology myself but have been a full-fledged atheist for going on a decade or so now - no question about it. This book only serves to reinforce that position. Dr Lewis-Williams argues forcefully and persuasively for the development of belief in a supernatural realm from an evolutionary-archaeological point of view. Somewhere in our (ie homo sapiens) distant past - when we began to think and communicate symbolically - we very gradually "posited" a supernatural realm in order to make sense out of our often terrifying and bewildering cognitive experiences of our interior lives (eg dreams and emotions and altered states) over against the natural material world. For reasons we may never ascertain - this belief in a supernatural realm was obviously sustained over time in our species through natural selection - it HAD to confer some sort of survival advantage on the groups among whom it evolved otherwise it would never have lasted. Socially and culturally the representations and rituals and doctrine and practices and beliefs arising therefrom became universally embedded in our collective human experience and consciousness as "religion". It could therefore be argued that religion is literally "all in our head" - although I don't believe Prof Lewis-Williams says it quite like that - in fact he is at great pains to avoid the very real errors of reductionism. He demonstrates how the "scientific mind" arose out of and has surpassed the "religious mind" in terms of helping us understand more deeply and accurately the world in which we live. Based on what he sees in Europe it is his opinion that - while we are obviously not living yet in a "post-religious" world - we are inexorably moving toward that. In this regard Prof Lewis-Williams echoes Kant's rallying cry of "Sapere Aude" uttered at the beginning of the Enlightenment: Let us throw off the shackles of ignorance and learn to think for ourselves. And I couldn't agree more. This is one of the best volumes on the burgeoning topic of religion and evolution that I have ever read.

An endlessly fascinating read that gives countless insights on God, "Conceiving God" is a must for any anthropology collection 15. Februar 2010
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Why did mankind go to embrace the concept of God? "Conceiving God: The Cognitive Origin and Evolution of Religion" explores the deepest history of religion and how it was cultivated out of the minds of early man. Going deep into the psychology of religion and how the earliest believers in a supreme being came up with their beliefs and began creating their customs and rituals that would ring true in generations to come. An endlessly fascinating read that gives countless insights on God, "Conceiving God" is a must for any anthropology studies collection.

Existence Exists. 28. August 2013
Von Ronald A. Trussell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This fantastically written and researched book shows how religion gets it wrong, and how fundamentalism is dangerously wrong. A culmination of insight regarding the development of human consciousness, begun in "The Mind in the Cave", we see how the regular experiences which occur in all human brains is mistaken for contact with "otherworldliness" and then used as an excuse, or litmus test, to exclude and control. A brilliant book.
but that was an example of my very good fortune. If you are a secular humanist 17. Februar 2015
Von Doctor B - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book is nothing short of extraordinary. I just stumbled across it, but that was an example of my very good fortune. If you are a secular humanist, as I am, you will find this book highly compelling. I have read deeply in the literature of philosophy, humanism, and the origins of religion. No author has done the superb job of Lewis-Williams to explain where this deep desire to believe in supernatural things comes from in our species. This is a book that I highly recommend for serious, deep-thinking individuals who are trying to make sense of this world and to understand the seeming natural proclivity human beings have for finding something "other-worldly" to believe it. I read this book on my Kindle, but I am going to probably order a hard copy because I want to keep it "on my shelf" for easy reference.
