Neurotheology in Interfaith Dialogue
In recent years, a growing interfaith movement has sought to bring together worldviews from various religious and spiritual backgrounds to investigate life's biggest questions. However, it is remarkable that such dialogue is possible given the vast differences that exist between individuals. A relatively new but burgeoning field, known as neurotheology, has sought to address the neurological processes and mechanisms of religious thought and experience. Overall, neurotheology provides insight into the common thread of religious belief across cultures and the ability of humans to participate in interfaith dialogue. In this manner, the shared overlap with the human mind and religious belief enables the ability to dialogue and face the vast unknowns of our modern world.
