The Philosophy of Belief with Rebecca Goldstein

March 10, 2014


Rebecca Goldstein, a professor of philosophy and the author of five novels and a collection of short stories, joins us on Point of Inquiry to discuss atheism, philosophy and her new book, Plato at the Googleplex: Why Philosophy Won’t Go Away

Goldstein, who will be a speaker at the upcoming Women in Secularism III conference, has written five novels — including the recent 36 Arguments for the Existence of God: A Work of Fiction — as well as a number of short stories, essays, and biographical studies. As someone with a distinguished career teaching Philosophy of Science, Philosophy of Mind, and as the recipient of a MacArthur Fellow “Genius Award”, and the Humanist of the Year award, she is in an exciting position to discuss historic, current and developing ideas in thought and the field of philosophy.
