Open peer commentary on the article “Phenomenological Properties of Perceptual Presence: A Constructivist Grounded Theory Approach” by Aleš Oblak, Asena Boyadzhieva & Jure Bon. Abstract: I want to initiate a dialogue on spatial theory between the history of religions and the cognitive sciences. The study of religious experiences offers approaches to perceptual presence to develop further the notion of structure of lived space. At the same time, empirical phenomenology and enactive cognitive science could help us understand the cognitive mechanisms at the interplay of mental imagery and the perception of divine presence.
