An Interview with Philosopher Peter Boghossian
This inaugural podcast from The Malcontent’s Gambit discusses the inadequacy of faith and strategies toward living in world without faith with Philosopher Peter Boghossian, who lives in Oregon and teaches at Portland State University. Boghossian has been called the Richard Dawkins of Portland. If we relieve people of their faith, and convince people to be truly honest and humble about what they know, religion will fall, says Boghossian. This is a frank and honest discussion with a bold, outspoken philosopher.
