Matter and mind: a non-theist exploration

Catherine Byrne

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This essay explores two non-theist approaches to mind and matter—Buddhism and Humanism. It examines these differing views in relation to Paley’s ‘design argument’ for the existence of God from a philosophical and biological perspective. While tracking along a path similar to one which a theologian may travel, this essay does not refer to theist doctrine.
