The Mystical Mind: Probing the Biology of Religious Experience (Theology
and the Sciences) (1999) with Eugene G. D'Aquili
How does the mind experience the sacred? What
biological mechanisms are involved in mystical states and trances? Is
there a neurological basis for patterns in comparative religions? Does
religion have an evolutionary function? This pathbreaking work by two
leading medical researchers explores the neurophysiology of religious
experience. Building on an explanation of the basic structure of the
brain, the authors focus on parts most relevant to human experience,
emotion, and cognition. On this basis, they plot how the brain is
involved in mystical experiences. Successive chapters apply this scheme
to mythmaking, ritual and liturgy, meditation, near-death experiences,
and theology itself. Anchored in such research, the authors also sketch
the implications of their work for philosophy, science, theology, and
the future of religion itself.
Why God Won't Go Away: Brain Science and the Biology of Belief
(2001) with Eugene G. D'Aquili and Vince Rause
Blending cutting-edge science with illuminating
insights into the nature of consciousness and spirituality, Why God
Won't Go Away bridges faith and reason, mysticism and empirical data.
The neurological basis of how the brain identifies the "real" is nothing
short of miraculous. This fascinating, eye-opening book dares to explore
both the miracle and the biology of our enduring relationship with God.
