Embodiment, Theology, and the Possibility of a Spiritual Sense

James W. Jones

  • Makes a case for recognizing the epistemological importance of senses beyond the traditional five, particularly a "spiritual sense"
  • Suggests avenues of research that would follow from adopting an embodied perspective of religious traditions
