Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This reader prints selections of some of the most profound and pioneering discussions of agnosticism over the past two centuries, including essays by Thomas Henry Huxley (who coined the term), Bertrand Russell, Albert Einstein, Isaac Asimov, and others.

Book News Annotation:

Joshi collects documents from the 19th and 20th centuries supporting the position that reason does not justify belief in the existence of God. Some of the 22 texts criticize religion others present scientific explanations for what see as religious phenomena, describe a personal life without religion, and speculation on Western society without Christianity. There is no index. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
