Em torno de A desilusão de Deus, de Richard Dawkins

Jorge Coutinho

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



In 2006 Richard Dawkins, the well-known British biologist published The God Delusion, with the presumed intention of proving, on a scientific basis, that (it is almost certain) that God does not exist. A number of considerations arise here: in essence, the book, as well as proving nothing of what it seeks to prove, disqualifies the author both in terms of his moral attitude and in terms of the epistemological error within which he works. What is of concern about this case is that the book is a sign of a renewed atheistic militancy and of an exacerbated presence, in the world of culture, of a real scientific fundamentalism, at the service of a culture without God.
