Graham Ward is Oxford Regius professor of Divinity. His new book ‘Unbelievable’ explores the biology and psychology of belief. Atheist professor of psychology Susan Blackmore joins the discussion in the first part of the show.
Is belief a purely material phenomenon of the brain? Though the ‘truth’ of belief remains under increasing attack, in a thoroughly secularized context, Ward argues that secularity is itself a form of believing.
