Аннотация

This chapter discusses neurochemical foundations (and specifically the physiological roles of oxytocin and vasopressin) of spiritual and religious behavior. I argue that the conceptual network prompted by the words "affiliation" and "affiliative behavior" should also include concepts of spirituality and religiosity. By focusing on the tradition of investigating affiliation and affiliative behavior in both the animal and human literatures, I focus on the concepts of personality and psychopathology. I argue that the use of the concepts of affiliation and affiliative behavior-and the knowledge of their neurochemical foundations-might be helpful in understanding how such human characteristics may be related to religiosity and spirituality.
