To Set Prometheus Free

Essays on Religion, Reason and Humanity

A C Grayling

Oberon Books

“For some years, AC Grayling and Richard Dawkins have been the good cop/bad cop of anti-religious thought. Dawkins publicly fights fire with fire, while Grayling has opted for a gentler advocacy of humanist values." Guardian


In 2007 Anthony Grayling wrote Against All Gods, a collection of polemical essays attacking religion. Now in To Set Prometheus Free he develops those themes more comprehensively, unpicking the claims and arguments of religious apologists, summarizing the views of his fellow secularist (Bertrand Russell in particular) detailing the controversy  over “Intelligent Design” and outlining his personal, naturalistic world-view.


He robustly calls for humanity to choose deliverance from religion because, as he puts it, “large portions of mankind remain in some degree in thrall to myths dating from an ignorant and illiterate past.”

A C Grayling is a Professor of Philosophy at Birkbeck College, University of London, a Supernumerary Fellow of St Anne's College, Oxford, a broadcaster and contributor to numerous newspapers and magazines, and author of many books on philosophy and other subjects.
