Product Details


“With his usual knowing discernment, S. T. Joshi mines the literature of two centuries to distill a peerless overview of the agnostic stance. He presents agnosticism complete, in all of its many variants and as championed by its most eminent defenders. Like Joshi’s reader on the closely related field of atheism, The Agnostic Reader squeezes between two covers the most brilliant writings devoted to this significant and controversial topic.”
Tom Flynn
Editor of Free Inquiry magazine
and The New Encyclopedia of Unbelief

“The essays here, grouped under headings like ‘Agnosticism and Science,’ ‘The Deficiencies of Religion’ and ‘The Agnostic Way of Life,’ make persuasive arguments in favor of an anti-dogmatic acknowledgement that it is impossible to ever know the truth about matters concerning God and the soul … [a] wonderful collection.”
