THE LAST SUPERSTITION
A Refutation of the New Atheism by Edward Feser. The central contention of the "New Atheism" of Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Sam Harris, and Christopher Hitchens is that there has for several centuries been a war between science and religion. But Edward Feser argues that, in fact there is not, and never has been, any war between science and religion at all. There has instead been a conflict between two entirely philosophical conceptions of the natural order. The material is rather difficult but Feser presents it clearly and within the context of a comprehensive history of philosophy. Paperback. 312 pages.
