Tales of Atheists and Atheism

Professing atheism is no longer a source of outrage, and it is increasingly common and acceptable for people to seek answers to life’s great questions without resorting to God. Especially in recent years, public debate has been characterised by a confrontation between believers and non-believers, the high point of which was the exchange of letters between Pope Francis and Eugenio Scalfari (founder of the national daily “la Repubblica”) . This book passionately explores how and why a flexible form of atheism may be the best overall outlook for a meaningful and ethically worthy life. With or without God, one can find principles for building societies accommodating religious and cultural pluralism and developing institutions and public norms making the most of human beings’ shared tendency to participate in their peers’ pleasure and pain.

Eugenio Lecaldano is professor emeritus at “La Sapienza” University in Rome, where he formerly taught Moral Philosophy.
