The Future of Naturalism Edited by John R. Shook and Paul Kurtz

"The Future of Naturalism" is a volume of fourteen essays by prominent philosophers about naturalism in the 21st century. Most of the essays came from a 2007 conference held by Center for Inquiry. This 272-page book is composed of the following fourteen essays:

1. The Future of Naturalism: Nature and Culture in Perspectival Duality by Nicholas Rescher
2. Reclaiming Naturalism by Joseph Margolis
3. Advantages and Limits of Naturalism
Not bad overall, very informative, though the technical language used in some chapters would be offputting to those not familiar with philosophical jargon. I'd give this one at least one more rereading, maybe more. Definitely a book to revisit from time to time.
