In 2017 the Inner West Council initiated a series of philosophy talks that will be given by local and visiting philosophers.

This is a series of public talks that are open to a wide audience. The aim of the series is to introduce interested members of the public to a figure, problem or area of philosophy.

There will be 5-6 talks in 2017. The second talk is by Assoc. Prof Peter Slezak  (UNSW).

Event Details

Title: Science, Religion and Politics

Speaker: Assoc. Prof. Peter Slezak  (UNSW)

Abstract: Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins have sought to assert, rational, objective grounds for rejecting traditional religious doctrines, however, it will be argued that they themselves are guilty of creating a secular religion — the faith of uncritical state worship.
