Science and religion in northern Europe: Global institutional dynamics in human experiences of the Divine

There is a gap in our understanding of how modern social life impinges upon human experience of the Divine or, by contrast, enables it. The aims of this project are to generate new knowledge about the interface of scientific rationality and religion in people’s daily lives in modern society. The focus of the project is on modern institutions, which are central to modern society and deeply impact people in ways we know very little about.

The 14-month pilot project will test methods and questions that can lead to a more thorough inquiry. The project idea will empirically test three hypotheses: (1) religious experience and modern scientific rationality are very often in tension (similar to that of competing modes of rationality) that people have to negotiate; (2) this (often un-reflexive) negotiation is intimately shaped by social forces that inform how people make sense of the world around them; and (3) a major social force affecting that negotiation is contemporary globalization, manifested in and around modern social institutions.
