Palavras-chave: Ciência Cognitiva da Religião, História das Religiões, Teoria e Metodologia

Resumo

Além da formulação de hipóteses e previsões intersubjetivamente testáveis acerca das ideias e condutas consideradas “religiosas” (não apenas por cientistas cognitivos, mas no trabalho de antropólogos e historiadores) o diálogo entre as ciências cognitivas, a História e o estudo comparativo das religiões pode contribuir em três questões centrais ao amplo campo de análises do fenômeno religioso: ajudando na estipulação dos tipos de dados que devem ser incluídos (e excluídos) dessa forma de inquérito, fornecendo uma estrutura para a organização e avaliação da História das Religiões e oferecendo uma base não-etnocêntrica para a comparação das práticas e crenças religiosas.
