Atheism+ : Does atheism entail more than not believing in God?
Wednesday 12 September from 5-6.30pm in ib3.307 on the Waurn Ponds campus
For those of you who are not aware, there has been something of a schism in the ‘New Atheist’ movement between those who feel the movement should focus on the promotion of humanist values (anti-sexism/racism/homophobia/transphobia etc.) and those who feel the movement should be exclusively about the promotion of atheism. The humanist values side, specifically Jen McCreight at BlagHag, coined the concept of ‘Atheism+’ — atheists who promote atheism plus other causes.
While there are a number of critiques of the movement, this particular one will be the focus of our discussion.
See you there.
