Atheism: The Basics, Paperback / softback Book


Atheism: The Basics is a concise and engaging introduction to belief in the non-existence of deities.

Atheism has long fascinated people but debate around this controversial position may seem daunting.

In this lively and lucid book, Graham Oppy addresses the following important questions:* What does it mean to be an atheist?* What is the difference between atheism, agnosticism, theism and innocence?* How has atheism been distributed over time and place?* What does science tell us about atheism?* Are there good reasons to be an atheist?* Are there good reasons not to be an atheist?* What do we mean by `new atheism'?

With a glossary of key terms and suggestions for further reading throughout, the book considers key philosophical arguments around atheism, making this an ideal starting point for anyone seeking a full introduction to the arguments between those who hold atheistic beliefs and those who do not.
