Eagleton om brödrostar, ateister och Tjechov

Den amerikanske litteraturvetaren Stanley Fish bloggar på New York Times, och kommenterar även han Terry Eagletons nya bok Reason, Faith, and Revolution:
When Christopher Hitchens declares that given the emergence of “the telescope and the microscope” religion “no longer offers an explanation of anything important,” Eagleton replies, “But Christianity was never meant to be an explanation of anything in the first place. It’s rather like saying that thanks to the electric toaster we can forget about Chekov .”
