Thought: Psychology, Religion and Phiosophy
Thought encompasses an “aim-oriented flow of ideas and associations that can lead to a reality-oriented conclusion”. Although thinking is an activity of an existential value for humans, there is still no consensus as to how it is adequately defined or understood. Psychology, philosophy and religion are various lenses into how people perceive and engage with the world.
