"New truth is often uncomfortable," Bertrand Russell wrote, "but it is the most important achievement of our species." In Religion and Science (1961), his popular polemic against religious dogma, he covers the ground from demonology to quantum physics, yet concedes that science cannot touch the profound feelings of personal religious experience.

Religion: A Cross-Cultural Encyclopedia (Human Experience) (repost)

David Levinson, "Religion: A Cross-Cultural Encyclopedia (Human Experience)"
English | 1996-12-30 | ISBN: 0874368650 | 288 pages | PDF | 23.1 mb

With numerous examples from cultures around the world, Religion: A Cross-Cultural Dictionary documents, describes, and explains both the commonalities and differences in how people experience and express their religious beliefs and spirituality. Clear and concise articles explain the varied philosophies, dogma, practices, and origins of the sixteen religions with worldwide following. Dozens of other articles provide a handy reference to both patterns of similarity and difference in religious practice across the cultures of the world. All cultures, for example, have beliefs in supernatural beings, religious leaders, and burial rituals, but they differ widely in their beliefs about the evil eye, dream interpretation, and the power of sorcerers. Reasons for these similarities and differences are discussed, with fascinating cross-cultural examples of religious customs and practices.

Spirit, Mind, and Brain: A Psychoanalytic Examination of Spirituality and Religion by Mortimer Ostow

Spirit, Mind, and Brain: A Psychoanalytic Examination of Spirituality and Religion (Columbia Series in Science and Religion) by Mortimer Ostow
Publisher: Columbia University Press; 1st edition (December 1, 2006) | ISBN: 0231139004 | Pages: 232 | PDF | 1.87 MB

Preeminent psychoanalyst Mortimer Ostow believes that early childhood emotional attachments form the cognitive underpinnings of spiritual experience and religious motivation. His hypothesis, which is verifiable, relies on psychological and neurobiological evidence but is respectful of the human need for spiritual value. Ostow begins by classifying the three parts of the spiritual experience: awe, Spirituality proper, and mysticism. After he pinpoints the psychological origins of these feelings in infancy, he discusses the foundations of religious sentiment and practice and the brain processes associated with spiritual experience. He then focuses on spirituality's relationship to mood regulation, and the role of negative spirituality in fostering religious fundamentalism and demonic possession.
Religious Pluralism in the Diaspora (International Studies in Religion and Society)

Religious Pluralism in the Diaspora (International Studies in Religion and Society)
Publisher: Brill Academic Publishers | ISBN: 9004152504 | edition 2006 | PDF | 390 pages | 13,3 mb

This book brings together the varied experiences of different cultural groups in their Diaspora context and provides insight into the various issues they have to deal with.
The content of the book is divided into the following broad categories:
Chinese Experience; Japanese-Brazilian and Brazilian Experience; South Asian Experience; Impact of 9/11 on Muslim Religious Pluralism; and Issues of Religious Pluralism in the Diaspora.
While keeping theory to a minimum, the book focuses on case-studies in the hope this will facilitate scholars to engage in further theoretical work on the phenomenon of religious pluralism in the Diaspora and in answering important questions on how religious pluralism can be conceptualised and which issues need to be addressed in doing so. The material is also useful for comparative studies in the academic study of religion.
