SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER 'A highly readable, fascinating book that
jerks the debate on religion versus atheism right out of its
crusted rut into the light of serious intellectual scrutiny'
Observer A meditation on the importance of atheism in the modern
world - and its inadequacies and contradictions - by one of
Britain's leading philosophers 'When you explore older atheisms,
you will find some of your firmest convictions - secular or
religious - are highly questionable. If this prospect disturbs you,
what you are looking for may be freedom from thought.' For a
generation now, public debate has been corroded by a narrow
derision of religion in the name of an often very vaguely
understood 'science'. John Gray's stimulating and extremely
enjoyable new book describes the rich, complex world of the atheist
tradition, a tradition which he sees as in many ways as rich as
that of religion itself, as well as being deeply intertwined with
what is so often crudely viewed as its 'opposite'. The result is a
book that sheds an extraordinary and varied light on what it is to
be human and on the thinkers who have, at different times and
places, battled to understand this issue.
