Deep Thoughts Philosophy Reading Group (Virtual) - REGISTER

In our reading for this month, Philip Goff, author of the book Why? The Purpose of the Universe, argues for a middle ground between atheism and theism regarding purpose in the universe. Goff believes that theists (believers in God) are right that the universe is purposely tuned for life to exist, but atheists (who deny that God exists) are right that there is too much unnecessary suffering for classical ideas of God to be correct. Instead, Goff thinks that we should find the middle ground between atheism and theism: panpsychism.
