Is Faith an Imagination? A brief commentary

Dr. Madhav Raje

Abstract :

Is faith an imagination? A ief Commentary What is faith? Is it an imagination, arising from nothing or void? If it is, then faith may not be a significant element in human life. Most of us awaken with that conclusion to deny practical use of faith. However, many assume faith is a vital entity of human life but cannot convince scientifically how & why. Many assume faith is a subject domain of spiritual or philosophically active individuals and there is no pragmatic value of faith in today’s high–tech life. Do you too hold such or similar views about ‘faith’? Then this commentary is for you to read. This commentary tries to explain with illustrations that faith is not a product of psychological or spiritual evolution. Neither is it a product of fearful mind. Commentary explains scientific roots of faith. It further narrates how faith can be modified for pragmatic purposes. It further suggests that psychotherapist can use this scientific information about faith during therapeutic sessions for the advantage of client as well as therapist. It also suggests that untrained elderly family member/s or parent/s too can be benefitted from this view point. Hence this commentary is for young/dynamic people (person who wants to change), psychologists, and for parents!
