In this poem by Courtney Druz we are challenged to “grow beyond the brittle carapace” of our selves and “leap like an ibex” from the “crags” of our doubt.
In this issue we seek to pursue greater insight into the question of atheism by moving beyond the walls of this narrow science-religion debate and reintroducing a historical perspective. Our writers explore how modern atheism may be far more than merely an intellectual position within a certain scientific framework, and rather a more pervasive cultural ethos. Moreover, in this issue we search out how this ethos has settled deep within the structures that underwrite and organize the shape of all modern social reality.
