Popis Various developments within the Cognitive Science that have occurred over the past decades provide an opportunity to study ritual from a new perspective. The idea behind is to combine creatively and effectively the mutual fields of interest of science of religions, cognitive science and neuroscience. The talk tries to find answers to pertaining questions like: What are the possibilities and constraints related to juxtaposing the findings of such divergent disciplines? How to establish methodological framework for such interdisciplinary study? To what extent may doctrinal notions be influenced by the affective processes (e.g. those triggered during itual)? Shouldn't the role of reflective processes be considered more significant in this context? Within ritual, and especially on the intersection of ritual and doctrine, the relation between the execution of motor acts and the formulation of linguistic expressions is of utmost importance. Cognitive linguists have dwelled on this relation, proposing such concepts as image schemata or conceptual archetypes to describe the relation between the body, the mind and the language. How can the relation between the motor and the linguistic be understood from the standpoint of neuroscience?
