Lecture Cancelled: Why Don’t Apes Point? Religious practice and the Nature of the Human (MT 14)

Location: OCHS Library
Speaker: Prof. Gavin Flood
Date: November 20, 2014
Time: 2:00pm-3:00pm

This lecture has been cancelled and re-scheduled to next term.

This lecture is a reflection on religious practice, drawing on contemporary primate research, ideas about shared intentionality, and phenomenology. To understand or explain religious practices we need to locate them within the broad context of human practices and contemporary knowledge about them in the soft and hard sciences.
