6. Description Abstract Since its inception, the Cognitive Science of Religion (CSR) has to a large extent moved from a cognitively-informed but interpretative focus to a hypothesis-driven experimental one. The experimental turn has allowed CSR scholars to practice more thoroughly interdisciplinary research and to engage in productive debates and collaborations with other disciplines. This direction has brought many benefits. However, CSR scholars will need to keep in mind that the strength of the field lies in its firm grounding in cultural expertise, and it is in this capacity that it can make its most important contributions.
