    This book examines longstanding debates in the anthropology of religion concerning the connections between ritual and meaning, belief, politics, emotion, development, and gender. But it examines these ‘old’ topics from a radically new perspective: that of the cognitive science of religion. Hallmarks of cognitive anthropology are the rigorous elicitation procedures and controlled questioning of native speakers, which produced greater precision, and the careful analysis of the distinctive mental features of human cognition and social activity (Atran in Boyer 48).Several early methodologies used by cognitive anthropologists were embedded in the theory of the feature model.

    Endorsements. Cognitive archaeology—sometimes called the archaeology of mind—is a fast-growing field. In The Foundations of Cognitive Archaeology Marc Abramiuk poses challenging questions about the prehistory of mind which are central to the understanding of what it is to be human.. Colin Renfrew. McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, University of Cambridge. Anthropology does not assume that competencies valued in Western communities (verbal skills, cognitive abilities, or signs of egocentric autonomy of the self, for instance), are necessarily meaningful child developmental outcomes elsewhere, although all cultures are concerned over some version of good communication, mental ability, and self.
