Religion Explained : The Human Instincts That Fashion Gods, Spirits and Ancestors Paperback
by Pascal Boyer

Pascal Boyer shows how experimental findings in cognitive science, evolutionary biology and cultural anthropology are now providing precise answers to these general questions, and providing, for the first time, real answers to the question: Why do we believe?
