Michel Onfray symposium

Atheism à la mode by Caspar Melville, New Humanist, July/August 2007

Symposium on Michel Onfray’s In Defence of Atheism, just published in the UK. Contributors: Richard Norman, Julian Baggini, Jonathan Rée, Doug Ireland.

I am not so thrilled about the panelists. Richard Norman ought to have done better. Julian Baggini is an improvement. Jonathan Rée has lost his mind, how different he is now that when he was interested in working class philosophers back in the '80s.

Note: This is the book published as Atheist Manifesto in the USA.
