Review "Who is dancing before me: my neighbor or a powerful spirit? Where do minds go when the body is occupied by someone else? The Mind Possessed details the colorfulness of spirit possession while rendering it understandable. This gracefully written book potently models how the cognitive sciences should impact the study of culture and religion. Cohen demonstrates that a sophisticated understanding of human minds enriches anthropology and religious studies with scientific insights. Simultaneously she shows that careful ethnography can highlight questions for psychological sciences that might otherwise go unnoticed, in this case, complex issues concerning human minds and bodies. -- Justin L. Barrett, Senior Researcher, Institute of Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology, University of Oxford, author of Why Would Anyone Believe in God? "The Mind Possessed is an extraordinary accomplishment. Drawing on her fieldwork in Brazil, Emma Cohen explores the fascinating phenomena of spirit possession-the belief in, and experience of, immaterial beings taking over people's bodies. What's really unusual here is how Cohen integrates her fieldwork with contemporary theories of cognitive development, evolutionary psychology, and, most of all, the cognitive science of religion. This is the rare book that should be seized upon by scholars from several disciplines-and by non-specialists as well. Cohen is smart, knowledgeable, and knows how to tell a hell of a story. The Mind Possessed is a joy to read." -- Paul Bloom, Professor of Psychology at Yale University, and author of Descartes' Baby: How the Science of Child Development Explains What Makes Us Human "The first major ethnography of this region of Brazil in over thirty years, this book blazes a trail in applying new theories in the cognitive science of religion to a complex cultural setting. Her critique of earlier approaches to the study of spirit possession carries the weight and authority of a new field behind it. All anthropologists and historians interested in possession phenomena should read this important new study." -- Harvey Whitehouse, Head of thet the School of Anthropology, Oxford University, and author of Inside the Cult "This is an important work that adds a crucial perspective to a controversial and fascinating topic. Highly recommended." --Choice "Cohen's book is admirable not only for its original hypotheses, but also for its attention to conceptual clarity...I highly recommend this compelling, original, challenging work." --Journal of Religion About the Author Emma Cohen is a Researcher at the School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography, Oxford
