Philosophy in the Community Talk: Atheist Spirituality: An Oxymoron?

Our next Philosophy in the Community talk will be held on Wednesday January 11th, at 7pm in our usual location (basement of St. James’s church).

Our speaker is Professor Eric Dayton and the title of his talk is “Atheist Spirituality:  An Oxymoron?”.  Here is an abstract: “It is a common view that by giving life meaning and direction, religion offers a good that is unavailable to the unbeliever.  In this talk I will ask whether this view is true or reasonable, by examining and untangling some of the issues concerning spirituality, religious belief and atheism.  I will argue that atheism is no barrier to a spiritual practice.”
