Philosophers and God
Full Product Description
The atmosphere in Britain of aggressive secularism contrasts sharply with a public culture in the USA of religious conservatism suspicious of secular humanism. Here, a series of philosophers reflect in an exploratory and confessional spirit upon the status and sources of their religion and spiritual sympathies- this may be commitment to faith, openness to religion, or experience of transcendence. The determination is to write with honesty to experience and rises above the rancour of recent public debate. The authors get down to the essentials in religious agnosticism, limits of secular humanism, the idea of conversion, the nature of despair and the possibility of moral objectivity.
