Towards Better Disagreement

Religion and Atheism in Dialogue

Jessica Kingsley Publishers
Boldly paving the way for constructive dialogue between atheists and religious believers, Paul Hedges tackles issues such as the treatment of women, the idea of a pure and empirical realm of “science,” and the association of religion with violence and warfare, debunking the myths and exposing the futility of the battle between “reason” and “belief.” Threading deftly between atheism, the major world religions of Christianity, Islam, and Buddhism, and smaller groups such as Paganism, Hedges demonstrates a vast scope for agreement and interaction between them, which will call to every open minded reader.
RELATED TOPICS: Religion & Spirituality
Paul Hedges is an associate professor of interreligious studies at the S Rajaratnam School of International Studies, Nanyang Technological University, in Singapore. He has previously held positions at universities in Britain, Canada, and China.
