Psychology, religion, and world loyalty

Paul Stenner

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article provides a critical commentary on Slife and Reber’s (2009) article, “Is There a Pervasive Implicit Bias Against Theism in Psychology?” Drawing on A.N. Whitehead’s (1926/2005, 1928/1985) process philosophy, I challenge the bifurcation between naturalism and theism and suggest that religion is better conceived as world loyalty than as supernaturalism.
