Atheist Mind, Humanist Heart: 30 Second Review

Atheist Mind, Humanist Heart: 30 Second Review October 18, 2014

The following is a 30 second review written by M Dolon Hickmon for the book Atheist Mind, Humanist Heart. 


Atheist Mind, Humanist Heart (October 16th 2014, Rowman & Littlefield) might best be described as a manual for working out one’s own summary of ethical beliefs. Co-authors Lex Bayer and John Figdor do produce a personal list of ten “non-commandments”, but readers are consistently advised to treat these as debatable illustrations, rather than as a completed non-theist moral framework. In spite of a minor flaw and some philosophy that could have used more explanation (discussed further in my full review over at The Freethinker), I liked Atheist Mind, Humanist Heart – especially as a launching point for those who have recently begun questioning their inherited beliefs.
