<p><strong>Secular Worldviews and their psychological functions</strong></p> <p>The aim of this <a href="https://research.kent.ac.uk/understandingunbelief/research/early-career-research-projects/3308-2/" rel="nofollow">research project</a> (part of, and funded by, the <a href="https://research.kent.ac.uk/understandingunbelief/" rel="nofollow">Understanding Unbelief</a> programme) is to investigate the worldviews of non-believers, since little is known about the diversity of these non-religious beliefs, and what psychological functions they serve. </p> <p>We wanted to explore (1) the idea that while non-believers may not hold religious beliefs, they still hold distinct ontological, epistemological and ethical beliefs about reality, and (2) the idea that these secular beliefs and worldviews provide the non-religious with equivalent sources of meaning, or similar coping mechanisms, as the supernatural beliefs of religious individuals.</p> <p>The data collection for this project has concluded, and analyses and write-up are ongoing. You can read a short article about the results published at <a href="https://theconversation.com/how-non-religious-worldviews-provide-solace-in-times-of-crisis-138638" rel="nofollow">The Conversation.</a></p>
