Acumen cover

Today is the official publication date for the UK (Acumen Publishing) edition of my book. With an altered title – Religion as Magical Ideology: How the Supernatual Reflects Rationality – the book is out in the Religion,  Cognition, and Culture series edited by Jeppe Sindig Jensen and Armin Geertz. Over the years I have written here much about what has gone into the book. So, I will simply quote what Robert McCauley very kindly says about it on the back cover:

‘A philosophical naturalist’s delight, this book crisply written and carefully argued weaves together insights about evolution, mind, and society to explain how religions work and how secularisation threatens them.’
