Little Atoms

with one comment

This Friday I’ll be talking about “Don’t Get Fooled Again” with Neil Denny, Padraig Reidy and Anthony Burn on Resonance FM’s “Little Atoms” discussion programme:

“If the show has a dominant and recurring theme, then it coalesces around the ideas of the Enlightenment, by which we mean freedom of expression, free inquiry, empirical rationalism, scepticism, the scientific method, secular humanism and liberal democracy. These ideas find their antithesis in superstition, religious fundamentalism, fanaticism, medievalism, totalitarianism, censorship and conspiracy theory.”

I’ve listened online to a couple of previous editions and I’m very much looking forward to being on Friday’s show.
