Breaking the Spell
Religion as a Natural Phenomenon
By Daniel C. Dennett
Author Daniel Dennett describes religion not as divine interaction, but rather as an emergent property of natural processes such as biology and psychology.
Breaking the Spell Details
Author Daniel Dennett takes an interesting stance on explaining the existence of religion. Rather than viewing it as a tradition handed down to mankind by a divine power as a set of rules and morals, he describes it as an emergent property of natural processes such as biological and social evolution.
This book examines what factors led to religion gaining so much power in our society, and why practitioners' lives are fundamentally shaped by it. Dennett questions whether there is something addicting about the religious experience. This provides a reasoned discussion that both believers and nonbelievers will find useful in furthering their own understanding.
