Standing Seminar: Religion & Human Personhood, Culture, and Society

The practice of religion has been observed in some form in all societies since the beginning of history. If it is the case that historically “where two or three are gathered” religion will be manifest in the communal life of the people, how integral is religion to the formation and stability of human personhood, culture, and society? As part of its standing seminar series on “Religion as Integral to Human Experience,” the Religious Freedom Project explored this question with noted sociologists Christian Smith, author of What is a Person? (2010), and Phil Zuckerman, author of Society without God (2008).
