Is Secularism Enough? with Dr. Mary Poplin

Join us at Hill House for dinner at 6pm with Dr. Mary Poplin, Professor of Education at Claremont Graduate University. Following dinner at 7pm she will present a talk on her latest book: Is Secularism Enough?

Academically, she explores the contemporary intellectual trends dominant in the various academic disciplines: the sciences, humanities, and social sciences. In 2014, she published Is Reality Secular? Testing the Assumptions of Four Global Worldviews (InterVarsity Press). In this book, Poplin examines four major worldviews—naturalism, humanism, pantheism, and Judeo-Christian theism—and explores their implications for human behavior and the evidence for their truth. She is a frequent speaker in Veritas Forums throughout the country.
