Summary Atheism: The Basics is a concise and engaging introduction to belief in the non-existence of deities. Atheism has long fascinated people but debate around this controversial position may seem daunting. In this lively and lucid book, Graham Oppy addresses the following important questions: What does it mean to be an atheist? What is the difference between atheism, agnosticism, theism and innocence? How has atheism been distributed over time and place? What does science tell us about atheism? Are there good reasons to be an atheist? Are there good reasons not to be an atheist? What do we mean by `new atheism'? With a glossary of key terms and suggestions for further reading throughout, the book considers key philosophical arguments around atheism, making this an ideal starting point for anyone seeking a full introduction to the arguments between those who hold atheistic beliefs and those who do not.
