Dr. Cliteur is a legal and ethical philosopher and Professor of Jurisprudence at the University of Leiden in the Netherlands. He's well known in the Netherlands as a columnist and writer with strong opinions on a host of issues including religion, politics, animal rights, and multi-culturalism. He has published numerous journal articles on topics relevant to his interests and areas of expertise. The President of the Humanist Association of the Netherlands from 1993 - 1995, Dr. Cliteur is the author of several books published in Dutch and one in English. It's his English book publication we invited him to speak to us about. Within the pages of The Secular Outlook: In Defense of Moral and Political Secularism can be found a tour through the ways that the threat of terrorism can be answered by secularism, why ethics must be secular, and an examination of the place and importance of free speech and criticism of religion. Join us for a fascinating discussion on these issues!
