At once polemical, insightful and thought-provoking, Conceiving God is essential reading for all those interested in the origins of religious thought, and the respective roles of science and religion in contemporary society. Building on the insights and discoveries of his two earlier books, The Mind in the Cave and Inside the Neolithic Mind, cognitive archaeologist David Lewis-Williams explores how science developed within the cocoon of religion and then shows how the natural functioning of the human brain creates experiences that can lead to belief in the supernatural realm.

How did prehistoric peoples those living before written records think? Were their modes of thought fundamentally different from ours today? Researchers over the years have certainly believed so. Along with the Aborigines of Australia, the indigenous San people of southern Africa among the last hunter-gatherer societies on Earth became iconic representatives of all our distant ancestors, and were viewed either as irrational fantasists or childlike, highly spiritual conservationists. Since the 1960s, a new wave of research among the San and their world-famous rock art has overturned these misconceived ideas. Here, the great authority David Lewis-Williams and his colleague Sam Challis reveal how analysis of the rock paintings and engravings can be made to yield vital insights into San beliefs and ways of thought. The picture that emerges is very different from past analysis: this art is not a naïve narrative of daily life but rather is imbued with power and religious depth. As this elegantly written, enlightening book so ably demonstrates, the prehistoric mind was in fact as complex and sophisticated as that of contemporary humans.

"In the Mind of a Game" provides a solid body of critical and theoretical material that furnishes the groundwork for academic, journalistic, and marketing writers on games, and focuses squarely on theory and criticism. It provides a core set of theoretical and critical writings that readers can draw upon as they write critical essays and other writings on games. This book is not simply an anthology of critical essays; it is a core set of writings that presents starting points for critical and commercial writers. It differs from current texts on the market by focusing on developing the critical theory that can be applied to computer game design and addressing a range of 14 central topic areas that can serve as a starting point for almost any academic or commercial writer. Included in this audience are teachers of literary, film, and game criticism, professional and academic critical writers, reviewers who participate non-professionally in Internet sites, and students oriented toward the arts and humanities seeking games as a topic of critical writing.
