Seven Types of Atheism with John Gray


On this episode I speak with philosopher and author, John Gray, about humanism, secular utopianism, and his new book, Seven Types of Atheism.

Professor Gray is the author of numerous books, including False Dawn: The Delusions of Global Capitalism, Straw Dogs: Thoughts on Humans and Other Animals, Black Mass: Apocalyptic Religion and the Death of Utopia, and, most recently, Seven Types of Atheism, which is not so much a strict typology of atheism. Indeed, what would such a project entail since atheism is one thing and one thing only. Rather, it’s a fascinating, enlightening, sometimes irritating survey of the various schools of thought into which atheists have fallen in the past several centuries.
