BRONNER Gérald

How can we understand the metamorphoses and current forms of belief? Why do some beliefs spread rapidly in public opinion and others do not? What are the social contexts that favor the emergence of beliefs? This book proposes several answers based on various examples describing the logic underlying our cognitive adhesions and the collective phenomena that promote them. The empire of beliefs and that of irrationality are not entirely compatible.
