Synopsis: The debate about atheism has, without doubt, stalled since the time of Bertrand Russell. In this incisive book, Daniel Harbour returns to its core issues - the existence of God, the values of faith, the role of religion in society - and casts them in an entirely new light. The real question, he argues, is how we should consider our urge to understand the world. Only then can we ask ourselves whether atheism or theism forms part of a coherent worldview. This new debate between atheism and theism forces us into an investigation of philosophy, science, history, ethics, and aesthetics, and a desire for intellectual integrity and commitment to truth. It is very far removed from the usual listing of the errors of theism. Nor can atheism be equated with denialism. It holds real and practical implications for the place of religion and the obligations of atheists in our society.
About the Author: Daniel Harbour is a gifted Ph.D. student of Noam Chomsky’s at MIT.
