Atheism: All That Matters: Book.pdf
Atheism is becoming increasingly popular and it sometimes feels that much of the western world is now post-religious. But now the initial charge of Dawkins and the new atheists has past, what does atheism really mean?
This is the question that Dylan Evans addresses in Atheism: All That Matters, providing a thoughtful and engaging atheist manifesto.
What values can atheists share with believers?How can a belief that something doesn't exist still be a belief?Is modern atheism new or just a new form of an old system of values?
Building on the work of atheist philosophers and psychologists, he shows how the history of atheist thought has developed and offers fresh ideas for how life has meaning from an atheist perspective.
Dylan Evans has been, among other things, a seminary student, psychotherapist, philosopher, roboticist, and leader of a disastrous Utopia Experiment off the West Coast of Scotland. His book, Placebo: The Belief Effect was shortlisted for Medical Book of the Year. His other titles include Introducing Evolutionary Psychology, which was required reading for Keanu Reeves before he played the part of Neo in The Matrix
