Read or download book entitled Agnosticism A Very Short Introduction written by Robin Le Poidevin which was release on 28 October 2010, this book published by Oxford University Press. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Book excerpt: What is agnosticism? Is it just the 'don't know' position on God, or is there more to it than this? Is it a belief, or merely the absence of belief? Who were the first to call themselves 'agnostics'? These are just some of the questions that Robin Le Poidevin considers in this Very Short Introduction. He sets the philosophical case for agnosticism and explores it as a historical and cultural phenomenon. What emerges is a much more sophisticated, and much more interesting, attitude than a simple failure to either commit to, or reject, religious belief. Le Poidevin challenges some preconceptions and assumptions among both believers and non-atheists, and invites the reader to rethink their own position on the issues.

These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly.
