James Dee

The Second Wave of Secular Humanism: How Scholarship Undermines Religion

Sunday, January 10 | 11 a.m.
Note: The regular first Sunday lecture in January only has been moved to Jan. 10

    In a provocative exploration of ways in which the work of the “new atheists” can be expanded and multiplied, retired Classics Professor James H. Dee will discuss how secular humanism can and should enlist academic allies, who have umpeccable scholarly credentials but whose views are not always publicized, in the perpetual conflict with irrational religious beliefs.

    Dee, who taught at the University of Illinois at Chicago for 25 years, is the author of nine books in the field of classics. He has held two National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowships and has been a Visiting Scholar in the Classics Department at the University of Texas. A founding member of the CFI Austin group, Dee has written many articles, including two for Free Inquiry magazine.
