Product description

Synopsis

Do religions have an inherent right to be respected? Is atheism itself a form of religion, and can there be such a thing as a 'fundamentalist atheist'? Are we witnessing a global revival in religious zeal, or do the signs point instead to religion's ultimate decline? In a series of bold, unsparing polemics, A C Grayling tackles these questions head on, exposing the dangerous unreason he sees at the heart of religious faith and highlighting the urgent need we have to reject it in all its forms, without compromise. In its place he argues for a set of values based on reason, reflection and sympathy, taking his cue from the great ethical tradition of western philosophy.

About the Author

A C Grayling is a Professor of Philosophy at Birkbeck College, University of London, a Supernumary Fellow of St Anne's College, Oxford, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. The author of numerous, a regular contributor to the press and a frequent broadcaster, he is the co-author with Mick Gordon of the play On Religion, also published by Oberon Books.
