Abstract: The talk distinguishes three main directions in the philosophical 
criticism of religion and  exemplifies them by the critique of religion 
contained in Schopenhauer’s Dialogue on religion: the inherent inability of 
religions to reveal the mythical nature of the objects of religious worship; 
the authoritarian nature of observing religious prescriptions; the allegation 
that religion produces more evil than good. On the last point, however, 
Schopenhauer is ambivalent: religion, to him, is the “philosophy of the masses” 
containing more than a grain of truth but in a form adapted to their seemingly 
limited intellectual capacities.

Join us 5 minutes prior to the beginning of the session!

With best wishes,
