Philosopher/Editor (1923-2004)

Paul Edwards, editor of the Encyclopedia of Philosophy, was a philosophical defender of atheism.

His book Reincarnation: A Critical Examination (Amherst, N.Y.: Prometheus Books, 1996) broadsides reincarnation arguments and is reviewed by Martin Gardner in the Summer 1997 issue of Free Inquiry.

In one of his last published pieces in Free Inquiry, Edwards wrote: "There is no God, there is no life after death, Jesus was a man, and, perhaps most important, the influence of religion is by and large bad."
