Teaching others to question -- and refine -- the way they think about the world is the job of a Street Epistemologist. Atheist Peter Boghossian's A Manual for Creating Atheists tackles this phenomenon and applies it to religion. Through Socratic Questioning, he aims to teach others how to think critically, giving people "the tools to talk people out of faith and into reason." Based on doctoral research of teaching the Socratic method to prison inmates to increase their critical thinking skills, Boghossian's discussions of humanism, faith, philosophy, and science will, according to the author, "create people who live thoughtful and examined lives." Boghossian is a philosophy professor at Portland State University and a national speaker for the Center of Inquiry. Presented by: Seattle Atheists. Tickets: $5 general admission. A limited number of tickets are available for a pre-event seminar with Boghossian. Email George@seattleatheists.org for more information. Doors open: 6:15 p.m. Learn more: About the event.
