Seminar / 30h / 4 ECTS / summer semester. Coordinator: dr Matylda Ciołkosz
The aim of the course is to get the participants acquainted with the relation between mind and cognition, and religion and the study of religions. The first half of the course will feature a discussion of different models of the mind and cognition in different religious traditions. The second half will focus on those methodological approaches within the study of religions that interpret religion in terms of cognitive activity, trying to answer the question of how “the mind” creates and interprets religious concepts and religious experience.
