Sense and Goodness Without God: A Defense of Metaphysical Naturalism | [Richard Carrier]

Sense and Goodness Without God: A Defense of Metaphysical Naturalism

If God does not exist, then what does? Is there good and evil, and should we care? How do we know what's true anyway? And can we make any sense of this universe, or our own lives? Sense and Goodness Without God answers these questions in lavish detail, without complex jargon. Arguing that there is only a physical, natural world without gods or spirits, noted historian and philosopher Richard Carrier presents and defends a complete worldview, one in which we can live a life of love, meaning, and joy.

Publisher's Summary

If God does not exist, then what does? Is there good and evil, and should we care? How do we know what's true anyway? And can we make any sense of this universe, or our own lives? Sense and Goodness Without God answers these questions in lavish detail, without complex jargon. Arguing that there is only a physical, natural world without gods or spirits, noted historian and philosopher Richard Carrier presents and defends a complete worldview, one in which we can live a life of love, meaning, and joy. In the process, he covers every relevant subject, from knowledge to art, from metaphysics to morality, from theology to politics. Specific topics include free will, the nature of the universe, the meaning of life, the science of beauty, and much more.

Although written for a lay audience, Sense and Goodness Without God tackles the sophisticated attacks on naturalism by the likes of Plantinga, Moreland, Reppert, and others, and clearly and methodically explains why the naturalistic worldview is more credible than any other.

    Story
    "Heady, Impervious, Soulless Lecturing"
    Would you try another book from Richard Carrier and/or Richard Carrier?

    No.


    What was most disappointing about Richard Carrier’s story?

    This book makes me think of the kind of book a calculator might write using circuitry logic and algebraic equations.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Richard Carrier’s performances?

    No.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Regret for its purchase.


    Any additional comments?

    A bit heady and impervious for your average reader—there’s no heart, soul, or passion in it. It's just a 15-hour brain-numbing lecture.
