Daniel Dennett, Breaking the Spell: Religion As A Natural Phenomenon, Part 1, February 14-20

My “Future of Faith” series continues with a conversation with Daniel Dennett.  He is the Austin B. Fletcher Professor of Philosophy at Tufts University.   He along with Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and the late Christopher Hitchens are seen as prominent voices for The New Atheism.   He is the author Breaking the Spell:  Religion As A Natural Phenomenon.  Dennett and colleague, Linda LaScola, published an article that has received a great deal of attention, Preachers Who Are Not Believers.    He was awarded the 2012 Erasmus Prize for his work in communicating science to the public and has appeared on numerous television and radio programs including TED (Responding to Rick Warren, Dangerous Memes, The Illusion of Consciousness, and Cute, Sexy, Sweet, Funny).   He joined me on Religion For Life to discuss possible futures for religion.   This is part one of a two-part conversation.
