Naturalism and Religious Experience

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review


    Drees examines a science-inspired naturalism that endorses a fully naturalistic view of reality, but does not exclude religious experience as a category of human experience. He considers some exceptional experiences that apparently conflict with natural events and experiences that coincide with affective responses, such as awe and wonder, proposing that the relevant exceptional experiences and affective experiences are explainable, at least in principle, within a naturalistic purview.
