The psychology of belief: Do we need God to make sense of life?

Jun 8, 2018 by

from The Big Conversation:

What are the psychological roots of faith beliefs?  Can we make our own rules for life or are we subject to a higher level of meaning? Can we dispense with religion as a ‘virus of the mind’, or are even atheists fundamentally religious deep down?

Jordan B Peterson and Susan Blackmore debate these questions and more in the first episode of The Big Conversation.
