The Religious Imagination and the Sense of God


Oxford University Press

This book attempts to listen to the accounts being given in certain behavioural sciences and in certain theistic traditions of the ways in which a sense of God occurs in human consciousness. These accounts make it entirely clear that the symbolic representation of claimed theistic reality is transmitted in increasingly formalized systems of information process, in which procedures of transmission and control are developed to ensure that process. It emerges from these studies of behavioural and theistic accounts of the human sense of God that the claimed reality of theistic reference seems to occur in consciousness in informational terms, as though the nature of that apparent reality shares the characteristics of an information system or net.

Keywords:   behavioural sciences, theistic traditions, sense of God, consciousness, theistic reality, information process
