University Tower President's Room (2nd floor)


As part of the IUPUI Secular Humanism Studies Speaker Series, Jeanine Diller, Ph.D., a professor at the University of Toledo’s Department of Philosophy and Program on Religious Studies, will discuss global and local atheisms.

There is a distinction between global and local versions of atheism and theism, where global ones are about all notions of God and local ones are about specific notions. Current expressions of atheism are often ambiguous between the two. Global atheism is difficult to enunciate and even more difficult to defend, so much so that global atheism is not yet justified. Until it is, atheists should be local atheists.
