Neuroscience and the Person
This collection of twenty-one research papers
is the result of the fourth of five international research conferences
co-sponsored by the Vatican Observatory in Rome and the Center for Theology and
the Natural Sciences. The articles
explore the creative interaction among the cognitive neurosciences, philosophy,
and theology. The volume begins by
pairing snapshots of neuroscientific research with biblical and
philosophical/theological accounts of human nature to set the poles between
which the volumes dialogue proceeds.
Themes include bridges between neuroscience and philosophy; neuroscience
and Christian anthropology; and contrasting reflections on the question of
whether a theistic account is needed to make sense of human nature.
