Wed., Oct. 28, 4:15pm - Founders Room - Honnold/Mudd Library.
Phil Zuckerman, Associate Professor of Sociology, Pitzer.
Many people assume that a society without a strong faith in God would be hell on Earth: full of chaos and immorality. Many people also assume that religion is a universal phenomenon because it addresses two essential human needs: the need for answers concerning the ultimate meaning of life, and the need for comfort in the face of death. Pitzer Sociology Professor Phil Zuckerman's research on Denmark and Sweden -- two of the least religious countries in the world -- challenges these assumptions. His research on societies where religion is weak and marginal raises some interesting questions about the role of religion in the modern world. His book, Society Without God: What the Least Religious Nations Can Tell Us About Contentment, was published by NYU in 2008.

Light refreshments will be provided.
