Peterson vs Harris, atheism and the alt-right – Esther O’Reilly and James Croft

September 20, 2018

Thousands of people recently attended four high-profile debates on religion and atheism between psychology professor Jordan Peterson and atheist writer Sam Harris.

Why are Peterson and Harris so influential, especially among young men? Why is Peterson’s approach making waves in atheist circles? Does the atheist movement have an alt-right problem?

These and more questions are debated by Humanist leader James Croft and Christian blogger Esther O’Reilly as they discuss the popularity of Peterson and Harris and whether Christianity or secular humanism can answer the questions people are asking.
