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 volume’s 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.
