Modes of Religiosity : A Cognitive Theory of Religious Transmission, Paperback / softback Book

Modes of Religiosity : A Cognitive Theory of Religious Transmission Paperback / softback

Part of the Cognitive Science of Religion series

Description

Religions_whatever else they may be_are configurations of cultural information reproduced across space and time.

Beginning with this seemingly obvious fact of religious transmission, Harvey Whitehouse goes on to construct a testable theory of how religions are created, passed on, and changed.

At the center of his theory are two divergent 'modes of religiosity:' the imagistic and the doctrinal.
