Lecture Six: Does Belief Matter? Belief, Hope, and Responsibility

This year’s Gifford Lectures by prof. Agustin Fuentes offer an exciting new perspective on human evolution, centered on human niche construction. These lectures inspired me to revisit my doctoral research on a practical cooperation between theology and evolutionary studies of religion, and reinforced my conviction that looking at (religious) education from a niche construction perspective can lead us to new insights on the how and, especially, the what of education… I posted a comment on Fuentes’ 6th lecture (second comment below the summary of the lecture), which can serve as an outline of what I want to develop further in the future. If you have any comments on this, please let me know!
