Science, Faith, and the Human Mind
The AAAS Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Religion (DoSER) Program proudly supports the work of neuroscientists, psychologists, and mental health professionals in their ongoing research and practice to better understand the human mind. In our continued engagement with scientific and religious communities, we at DoSER frequently engage in conversations about how scientists and people of faith can work together to understand the latest findings in brain science nd to explore the meanings and implications of those discoveries. These topics range from philosophical questions of free will and human morality to considerations in caring for those experiencing mental illness.
In the resource center, you will find a plethora of videos, syllabi, and articles on engagement with neuroscience and psychology from a variety of religious traditions. Several videos from our “Science: The Wide Angle” film series touch on the human mind, including Frontiers of Neuroscience: Charting the Complexities of Our Brains, Caring for the Health of Your Brain, and Is the Human Mind Predisposed to Religious Thought?
