The Secular Conscience | Dr. Austin Dacey speaks in Toronto this Friday

THE SECULAR CONSCIENCE:  WHY BELIEF BELONGS IN PUBLIC LIFE,
 with Dr. Austin Dacey.  The first Canadian book tour stop!

 Do ethics presuppose religion? Are objective morals incompatible with
 secular liberalism? Do questions of religion & values belong in public
 life?

 Secularism has lost its soul. From Washington to the Vatican to
 Tehran, religion is a public matter as never before, and secular
 values-personal autonomy, toleration, separation of religion and
 state, and freedom of conscience-are attacked on all sides. Dacey
 calls us to rethink the nature of conscience and its role in public
 life, urging secular liberals to break the silence and defend a new
 secularism based on objective values of conscience.

 “A beautiful primer on how our secular tradition can be rescued from
 self-defeat…”
 – Sam Harris, author of The End of Faith
