    The Moral Atheist argues in non-technical terms that ‘being moral’ is compatible with ‘being an atheist’, but goes further to suggest that there is more harmony between these two notions than there is between ‘being moral’ and ‘being a theist’. Using reason, semantics and common sense, Tomlinson makes the case that, first, the non-existence of a god does not imply that there is no discoverable objective morality and that, second, without the belief in a god there are still excellent reasons for the atheist and everyone else to strive to be a good person. The book presents a practical and objective ethical system that reflects how language is used in everyday communication. Along the way the reader explores important philosophical insights while gaining an appreciation for the way that philosophy is actually done.

    Tomlinson has been an instructor of Philosophy at California State University, Northridge for thirty-three years.
