On second-order religion, agatheism and naturalism

Research output: Contribution to journalComment / DebateOtherpeer-review


These comments, on the paper by Branden Thornhill-Miller and Peter Millican1 and on the critique of that paper by Janusz Salamon2, divide into four sections. In the first two sections, I briefly sketch some of the major themes from the paper by Thornhill-Miller and Millican, and then from the critique by Salamon. In the final two sections, I provide some critical thoughts on Salamon’s objections to Thornhill-Miller and Millican, and then on the leading claims made by Thornhill-Miller and Millican. I find much to commend, but also some things to dispute, in both papers. As is so often the way, I shall focus on areas of disagreement.
