Professor Phil Zuckerman author of What It Means to Be Moral: Why Religion Is Not Necessary for Living an Ethical Life sits down with Jack and Andy and discusses morality, a few scientific studies, and Nazis.
Because how can you talk about anything these days without bringing up Nazis?
Professor Zuckerman teaches at Pitzer College. He’s written several books, and works at educating students and the public about secularism.
Here is a bit from his bio page:
Phil writes a regular blog for Psychology Today titled “The Secular Life,” and he also writes for the Huffington Post. His work has also been published in various scholarly journals, such as Sociology Compass, Sociology of Religion, Journal of Contemporary Religion, Deviant Behavior, and Religion, Brain, and Behavior.
In 2011, Phil founded the first Secular Studies department in the nation. Secular Studies is an interdisciplinary program focusing on manifestations of the secular in societies and cultures, past and present. Secular Studies entails the study of non-religious people, groups, thought, and cultural expressions. Emphasis is placed upon the meanings, forms, relevance, and impact of political/constitutional secularism, philosophical skepticism, and personal and public secularity.
