The Biological Evolution of Religious Mind and Behavior
Springer | 2009 | ISBN: 3642001270 | 305 pages | PDF | 1,8 MB

 

In a Darwinian world, religious behavior – just like other behaviors – is likely to have undergone a process of natural selection in which it was rewarded in the evolutionary currency of reproductive success. This book aims to provide a better understanding of the social scenarios in which selection pressure led to religious practices becoming an evolved human trait, i.e. an adaptive answer to the conditions of living and surviving that prevailed among our prehistoric ancestors.
