Intense Experiences and Epistemological Reliability Project (2006-2008)

This project involves a partnership between Wesley Wildman and IBCSR Post-Doctoral Fellow Nat Barrett (a graduate of Boston University’s Science, Philosophy, and Religion program). The aim is to investigate the senses in which the cognitions resulting from intense religious and spiritual experiences are reliable and unreliable, and to contribute to the treatment of this question in philosophy-of-religion literature by drawing in an ecological theory of perception that is more adequate than those currently under discussion.

The paper resulting this work has been submitted for publication. Details of its publication will be provided here when they become available.
