The transcript of the one and only conversation between 'the four horsemen' of New Atheism, with new introductions from Dawkins, Dennett and Harris and a sparkling foreword by Stephen Fry.
Known as the 'four horsemen' of New Atheism, these four big thinkers of the twenty-first century met only once. Their electrifying examination of ideas on this remarkable occasion was intense and wide-ranging.
Everything that was said as they agreed and disagreed with one another, interrogated ideas and exchanged insights – about religion and atheism, science and sense – speaks with urgency to our present age.
Questions they asked of each other included:
- Is it ever possible to win a war of ideas?
- Is spirituality the preserve of the religious?
- Are there any truths you would rather not know?
- Would you want to see the end of faith?
The dialogue was recorded, and is now transcribed and presented here with new introductions from the surviving three horsemen.
With a sparkling introduction from Stephen Fry, it makes essential reading for all their admirers and for anyone interested in exploring the tensions between faith and reason.
