Publisher's Summary

In this hour, Karen Armstrong is a historian of religion. Her latest book is The Case for God. She talks with Steve Paulson and says we've lost our sense of God as the ineffable; that any god we can imagine is only a symbol for the true nature of god.

Next, Russell Shorto is the author of Descartes' Bones: A Skeletal History of the Conflict Between Faith and Reason. Shorto talks with Jim Fleming about the life and work of Rene Descartes and what happened to his mortal remains.

Then, Hope Edelman is the author of a memoir called The Possibility of Everything. As she tells Anne Strainchamps, it's the story of how she and her husband sought help from native spiritual healers during a trip to Belize for their then three year old child who was overly influenced by her imaginary friend.

And finally, Steven Pinker is a cognitive psychologist at Harvard. His best-selling books include The Stuff of Thought and How the Mind Works. His wife, Rebecca Goldstein, is a philosopher and novelist who is particularly drawn to the great 17th century philosopher, Spinoza. Goldstein's latest book is 36 Arguments for the Existence of God. Both Goldstein and Pinker are atheists, and thery talk with Steve Paulson about the debates pitting reason against faith. [Broadcast Date: January 20, 2010]
