Believing in Dawkins

The New Spiritual Atheism

«“The strength of this book is that it offers a serious, thoughtful, atheistic spiritual naturalism. … this is an excellent, thought-provoking book. It is my hope that this book can contribute to a conversation in philosophy of religion that goes beyond rehearsing arguments about the rationality of theism. … Steinhart does an excellent job of outlining a coherent vision of spiritual naturalism. … There is a lot of material here for discussion on the metaphysics and ethics of spiritual naturalism.” (Helen De Cruz, Journal of the American Academy of Religion, August, 2021)»

Dawkin's militant atheism is well known; his profound faith less well known



In this book, atheist philosopher Eric Steinhart explores the spiritual dimensions of Richard Dawkins' books, which are shown to encompass:

* the meaning and purpose of life

* an appreciation of Platonic beauty and truth

* a deep belief in the rationality of the universe

* an aversion to both scientism and nihilism



As an atheist, Dawkins strives to develop a scientific alternative to theism, and while he declares that science is not a religion, he also proclaims it to be a spiritual enterprise. Les mer

Dawkin's militant atheism is well known; his profound faith less well known



In this book, atheist philosopher Eric Steinhart explores the spiritual dimensions of Richard Dawkins' books, which are shown to encompass:

* the meaning and purpose of life

* an appreciation of Platonic beauty and truth

* a deep belief in the rationality of the universe

* an aversion to both scientism and nihilism



As an atheist, Dawkins strives to develop a scientific alternative to theism, and while he declares that science is not a religion, he also proclaims it to be a spiritual enterprise. His books are filled with fragmentary sketches of this 'spiritual atheism', resembling a great unfinished cathedral. This book systematises and completes Dawkins' arguments and reveals their deep roots in Stoicism and Platonism.



Expanding on Dawkins' ideas, Steinhart shows how atheists can develop powerful ethical principles, compelling systems of symbols and images, and meaningful personal and social practices. Believing in Dawkins is a rigorous and potent entreaty for the use of science and reason to support spiritually rich and optimistic ways of thinking and living.
