Book publication on the emergence and evolution of religion by AIAS Fellow Armin W. Geertz et al

In the new book 'The Emergence and Evolution of Religion: By Means of Natural Selection', Geertz and co-authors develop a robust and cross-disciplinary analysis of religion by answering an old question in novel ways.

Why did religion first emerge and then continue to evolve in all human societies? 

This question is the point of departure in AIAS Fellow and Professor Armin W. Geertz and co-authors’ new book The Emergence and Evolution of Religion: By Means of Natural Selection (New York and London: Routledge, 2017). Written by leading theorists and empirical researchers, the new publication constructs a deeper and more powerful explanation of the origins and subsequent evolutionary development of religions than can currently be found in what is now vast literature.
