Search - List of Books by Pascal Boyer

Pascal Boyer (fl. c. 2000) is a French anthropologist who advocates the idea that human instincts provide us with the basis for an intuitive theory of mind that guides our social relations, morality, and predilection toward religious beliefs. Boyer and others propose that these innate mental systems make human beings predisposed to certain cultural elements such as belief in supernatural beings.

Boyer has conducted long term ethnographic fieldwork in Africa, where he studied the transmission of oral epics, and has held teaching and research positions at several universities. He is currently Henry Luce Professor of Individual and Collective Memory at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.
