Benjamin Grant Purzycki

Benjamin Grant Purzycki is a sociocultural anthropologist who engages in the cognitive, evolutionary, and ethnographic sciences of cooperation and religion. Presently, most of his attention is devoted to understanding cross-cultural variation in the cognition of supernatural minds, and how explicit religious beliefs and rituals adaptively address local pressures that require collective coordination. He is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of British Columbia’s Centre for Human Evolution, Cognition, and Culture.
