36 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Every human society has engaged in religious practices. In the past religions have provided answers to the basic questions of life: Who am I? Why am I here? What happens when I die? In the modern world, religious answers to these questions are unacceptable to many, yet religions continue to persist."--BOOK JACKET. "Religions involve structural beliefs, narratives, rituals, moral codes, religious experience and social aspects. Robert Hinde argues that each of these arises from the nature of humankind. For example, belief in a deity satisfies the human tendency to attribute events to causes, and can reduce anxiety. Or narratives, such as those presented in gospels, appeal in part because we see our own lives as unfolding narratives."--BOOK JACKET. "Anyone interested in probing the nature of religion, and why religions continue to persist, will be drawn to this extraordinary and unique book."--Jacket

Why good is good : the sources of morality by Robert A Hinde( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What can science tell us about morality? It is often said that science - because it tells us about the way the world is and not how it ought to be - can have nothing to say about ethical matters; yet scientists increasingly tell us that evolutionary biology has much to tell us about our values. This new book argues that only a multidisciplinary approach will enable us to understand morality." "The multidisciplinary nature of this book makes it accessible to anyone interested in the relation of ethics to biology, social science and the humanities."--Jacket
