Reality, Religion, and the Mind examines metaphysics, the basic, broad study of reality. The field encompasses such fundamental questions as the following: Is there really a God? Is there life on other planets? Do other people feel the same sensations that I do? In addition, this volume explores philosophy of mind, a subfield within metaphysics, which asks such questions as whether the mind is the same thing as the brain. Coverage also includes philosophy of religion, another subfield within metaphysics. What, or who, is God? Are there souls? Can science and religion contradict each other? Is there a religious reality that is different from a scientific one? Reality, Religion, and the Mind outlines different ways philosophers have attempted to answer these questions and more.
