Terry Eagleton on Faith and Reason

While I’m posting past lectures, I thought I’d like to share another. Back in 2008 Terry Eagleton delivered Yale University’s Terry Lectures, which Eagleton used to assess the rise of the New Atheist movement. They were entitled Faith and Fundamentalism: Is Belief in Richard Dawkins Necessary for Salvation?

Its four lectures ran as follows.

  1. Christianity: Fair or Foul?
  2. The Limits of Liberalism
  3. Faith and Reason
  4. Culture and Barbarism

This time I thought I’d like to share the third lecture from the series.

The rest of the lectures are available HERE.

They’re also available in book form:

Reason, Faith, and Revolution: Reflections on the God Debate, (YUP, 2010).
