Geekers op je Speakers #023 – Suske en Wiske en Johan de Smedt

Geekers op je Speakers

Een speciale, uurlange aflevering dit keer, omdat we een heldhaftige podgast hebben: Johan de Smedt, live uit Antwerpen. Hij is een van de creatieve breinen achter het megasucces van Amoras, de serie die eigenhandig Suske en Wiske voor veel mensen weer op de kaart heeft gezet. We gaan diep in op de origine van het idee, plannen voor de toekomst en hoe te communiceren met schrijver Marc Legendre, die op het vulkanische, Canarische eiland El Hierro woont. Deelnemers: Gert-Jan van Oosten, Roderick Leeuwenhart, Kenny Rubenis en Johan de Smedt

Helen de Cruz and Johan de Smedt, “A Natural History of Natural Theology” (MIT Press, 2015)

New Books in History

In A Natural History of Natural Theology: The Cognitive Science of Theology and Philosophy of Religion (MIT Press, 2015), Helen de Cruz of the VU University Amsterdam and Johan de Smedt of Ghent University examine how the findings of cognitive science can and cannot be used to draw conclusions about the rationality of religious belief. They examine the types and role of the cognitive processes at work in these arguments, such as cause and effect and inference to the best explanation. They also consider whether theism provides a good reason for the pervasiveness of religious belief across human societies across time, and argue that the seemingly obvious conclusion that a naturalistic explanation of religious beliefs debunks these beliefs is not at all obvious.
