Zygon: Journal of Religion & Science

Zygon Covers the Cognitive Sciences

by
David Glover

Over the years Zygon has much to say about mind, brain, consciousness, cognition, and the cognitive and neurosciences in general. More than seven percent (150+) of our 2100 articles and reviews have been written on these interrelated topics, including two articles in our first year of publication. With so much ground to cover the task of briefly summarizing this body of work is daunting. Does one start at the beginning in 1966; or look back from the present and see how we have gotten here as the thinking in the field has changed and evolved with time? I will highlight a few of our recent articles first and then look at some articles that have appeared earlier.

In the March 2007 issue of Zygon Nancy Morrison and Sally Severino touch on the cognitive sciences when they look at how brain functioning and psychological development play a role as the physiological mediators of altruism. While more “fundamental” discussions of consciousness occurred last year when Lothar Schäfer and Ervin Laszlo exchanged views on cosmic consciousness and Mind (in the Teilhardian sense) as they relate to quantum physics in three articles in the September issue and when Kirsten Birkett argues for a nonreductive yet materialistic understanding of consciousness.

The neurosciences have been regularly covered for 30 years in articles by Eugene d’Aquili, Andrew Newberg, and others on their studies of brain functioning. Most recently this was in 2005 articles by Bruce Lee and Andrew Newberg. In 1993 Zygon profiled d’Aquili and his work on biogenetic structuralism. Rodney Holmes, Mary Lynn Dell, and James Ashbrook each commented on d’Aquili’s work in a constructive critical engagement with his thought. This was later followed up with a symposium on d’Aquili and Newberg’s book, The Mystical Mind, in 2001. Also in 2005, Amos Yong and Ellen Goldberg discussed ways that these neuroscientific inquiries touch upon Buddhism.

An early champion of neurotheology was James Ashbrook who first wrote for Zygon in 1984, authoring or co-authoring, with Carol Rausch Albright, thirteen papers in Zygon’s pages through the years. His thinking was looked at by several authors in Zygon during 1996 and then culminated with reflections on his final book, The Humanizing Brain, in 1999. (The final symposium included an article by Jeffrey Kurland writing on the intersection of Buddhism with this line of thought.) Of Ashbrook’s earlier books, Zygon has printed reviews by Philip Hefner of The Human Mind and the Mind of God: Theological Promise in Brain Research (1985) and by Robert Potter of The Brain and Belief: Faith in the Light of Brain Research (1992). Further in depth exploration of neurotheology has continued in the pages of Zygon with reflections on book projects by Helmut Reich (2003) and Greg Peterson (2004).

The 1990’s were the decade of the brain—or so said an act of the US Congress. Zygon recognized this by devoting most of its 1996 pages to cognitive science articles. This culminated in the symposium on “Knowledge Most Worth Having in the Decade of the Brain” put together in Zygon through the efforts of neurophysiologist Rodney Holmes from material authors presented at the 1993 American Association for the Advancement of Science and 1994 Institute on Religion in an Age of Science/Star Island meetings.

Other notables in the development of these fields who have published in Zygon over the years are Paul MacLean, Roger Sperry, and Victor Turner. Turner’s 1983 Zygon article was a radical breakthrough for the cognitive sciences. Here was a renowned cultural anthropologist calling for more attention to the biogenetic approaches to his field—prior to this, the two camps were at odds with each other. A work recognized further by contributors to Zygon when in 1986, following his death, two issues were devoted to articles reflecting on his ideas. And all of this started in Zygon with articles that appeared in our very first year by Hudson Hoagland and Frank Lawrence on the mind, brain, consciousness, and psychology.

Realizing that, due to the sheer number of articles on the cognitive sciences that have appeared in Zygon over the years, some may have been overlooked, I am providing here a list of many of the articles on the cognitive sciences found in Zygon.
