Episode 103 of our book read/podcast covering major topics in various fields of psychology moves us into PSYCHOLOGY OF RELIGION! This summer we are going to discuss religion from a psychological and historical perspective as we investigate the evolutionary origins and modern social systems of religion.
In this episode we discuss SURVELLIENCE AND RELIGION and how early religion served a surveillance and norm maintenance function and how that has evolved over the centuries into something more individualistic and controlled as we continue to explore the nature of declining religious systems and how modern examples influence behavior in the same way it did for our ancestors.
