New edited volume in honor of Armin W. Geertz
Brill has published a new edited volume Evolution, Cognition, and the History of Religion: A New Synthesis.
Intended as a Festschrift for Armin W. Geertz, this joint project provides a new synthesis of the study of religion, advocating the need to integrate three approaches, namely the evolutionary, the cognitive and the historical, into a single stream. Among the 41 chapters coming from the world's leading experts on these approaches, you will also find chapters by Radek Kundt (Making Evolutionary Science of Religion and Integral Part of Cognitive Science of Religion) and Eva Kundtová Klocová (Experimenting with Cognitive Historiography). Many thanks to all editors for their relentless efforts!
