Review of Hart’s new book: ‘Atheist Delusions’

Here is a review of David Hart’s new book: ‘Atheist Delusions: The Christian Revolution and its Fashionable Enemies’.  

Hart has another article (cited in this one) in First Things from a few years ago that hammers away at Dennett.

I am increasingly moving in the direction of the First Things editors in not taking New Atheism all that seriously as a philosophical point of view (though it is certainly a cultural phenomenon).  As the article points out, serious atheists like Nz are the ones we theists should be engaging.  So even though I am posting this, I don’t plan on getting sucked into a big debate about New Atheism.  I find it, frankly, utterly uninteresting and completely incapable of taking up in a serious way the lived human question (something Nz really tries to do).

Associate Vice Provost and Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Utah State University. I teach across the curriculum, but am most interested in continental philosophy, ancient and medieval philosophy as well as Catholic thought, all of which might be summed up as an interest in the ressourcement tradition (returning in order to make progress). I also enjoy spending time thinking about liberal education and its ends.

  1. Dennett and Dawkins are really, really smart, and Catholic apologists’ mothers wear army boots. Ha Ha! Just try not taking that bait, Kleiner!
