Scientific and Religious Cognition » Scientific and Religious Cognition

The Social Learning Lab has launched a new project examining how children from the USA and other countries conceptualize religious and scientific claims. In this project, we plan to run several studies that aim to answer the following questions:
1. What are the cognitive differences and similarities in children’s conceptualization of scientific and religious phenomena?
2. What is the transmission process involved in these conceptualizations?
3. Are there any cultural universals in these conceptualizations?
