Jump to: navigation, search

Australian Philosopher

In the Winter 1997/98(?) edition of Free Inquiry, Passmore describes his youthful rebellion against his Catholic upbringing when he began to contemplate the inhumanity of the Catholic doctrine that there is no salvation outside the Church. He says that when he attended university his philosophy teacher provided him with metaphysical arguments against religion. Passmore describes himself as a "pessimistic humanist" who regards neither human beings nor human societies as perfectable.
