50 Voices of Disbelief: Why We Are Atheists, edited by Russell Blackford and Udo Schüklenk, is now available.
It turned out to be very good book. I contributed one of the chapters, so I didn’t want to say anything about the book before I read it all through. But now that I’ve done so, I’m impressed. Almost all of the short chapters, which range from personal reflections to more detailed arguments, are both very readable and quite interesting as well. In many cases, I learned something. The wide range of backgrounds of the writers—not just philosophers and scientists but science fiction writers and political activists as well, also make this an intriguing volume.I’m glad to have been part of this project, and I hope the book does well.
