Autorka analizuje neuroantropologiczne badania religii na podstawie przemyśleń J.S. Jensena oraz A. Geertza. Neuroantropologia koncentruje się na sprzężeniu zwrotnym pomiędzy kulturą a ludzkim umysłem. Stąd założenie, że kultura została stworzona przy pomocy ludzkiego mózgu i, z drugiej strony, oddziałuje ona na jego rozwój, strukturę oraz funkcjonowanie. Dyscyplina ta interpretuje wyniki badań określające uwarunkowania ludzkiego zachowania przez kulturę (w tym religię) oraz biologię. Neurokognitywistyka jest zatem dyscypliną funkcjonującą na pograniczu kilku nauk. Na gruncie polskim dziedzina ta dopiero się rozwija.

The author analyses the neuroanthropological research of religion based on reflections of J.S. Jensen and A. Geertz. Neuroanthropology focuses on the study of the culture-human brain nexus. Culture originated with the help of human brain and, on the other hand, influences its development, structure and functioning. This discipline interprets the results of research conditioning the determinants of human behaviour by culture and biology. Following this, neurocognitive science is a discipline operating on the border of several sciences. Its purpose is to investigate various aspects involved in the functioning of the nervous system, including the relationship between religion and the human brain. In Poland, this field is just developing.
