A lack of faith in atheist philosopher's secular solution

27th November 2009 at 00:00

That a philosopher supports the idea that children from secular families should go to faith schools is a nonsense. Professor Brighouse has just denied the potential of philosophy itself. There are real alternatives to religious values and teachings in the work of thinkers such as Epicurus, Pierre Hadot, Thomas Hobbes, John Stuart Mill, Jeremy Bentham, Friedrich Nietzsche, Richard Dawkins and Michel Onfray.
