Event
Pascal Boyer is giving a talk about his work (no title yet). He wrote the book Religion Explained ? ?The main theme of this book is that we now have a better understanding of religious representations, their causes and their role in human cognition, simply because we have a better and more precise understanding of the mind-brain, its evolution, its structure and its specific dispositions.? (from his website).

Pascal Boyer, Henry Luce Professor of Individual and Collective Memory at Washington University in St. Louis.
