In THE ATHEIST'S CREED a prominent and widely read contemporary philosopher, Dr Michael Palmer, presents the most comprehensive anthology of the major philosophical arguments for atheism now before the public. While the so-called 'new atheism' of Richard Dawkins and others has attracted considerable publicity, it is these philosophical arguments that have down the ages provided the principal landmarks in the unfolding and increasingly widespread belief that no God exists. Using a combination of extracts, detailed introductions, biographies and extensive bibliographies, the author guides the reader through the history of atheism, from the time of the early Greeks down to the present day. In this analysis particular attention is given to the writings of Hume, Nietzsche, Marx and Freud. 'The Atheist's Creed' requires no specialist knowledge of philosophy. Each chapter is structured around a single theme and the various authors coordinated to allow the full force of the particular atheistic argument to emerge. The result is a compelling and powerful assessment of the case for atheism, which will be essential and fascinating reading for student and non-student alike, and for all those concerned with the fundamental question: whether or not there is a God. About the Author: Dr Michael Palmer was educated at Lancing College and St. John's College, Durham. A former Teaching Fellow at McMaster University and Humboldt Fellow at Marburg University, Dr Palmer has taught at Marlborough College and Bristol University, and was for many years founding Head of the Department of Religion and Philosophy at The Manchester Grammar School. His 'Moral Problems' (Lutterworth, 1991; 2nd ed, 2005) remains the most influential school coursebook in philosophy of its generation. Other publications for The Lutterworth Press are 'Moral Problems in Medicine' (2005) and 'The Philosophy of Religion' in two volumes (2008).

'With the cultural shifts taking place in the modern West, along with the ongoing rise of secularis, this book is as timely as it is helpful...It is especially helpful to students who need a reference source that is quick and accessible...This anthology shows just how rich and expansive atheism's history is, and we would do well to learn from it.'
