Modernity, some have suggested, sows the seeds for a purely materialist, mechanistic, non-experiential, a-religious perspective of the world. However, new work on God and Modern philosophy in philosophers such as Descartes, Hobbes, and Kant challenges this assumption. Through the lens of some of the most important Modern figures, the present panel discussion explores the following question: Does contemporary philosophical materialism regarding humans have much footing in the modern dialectic? We suggest that it does not by considering Descartes, Hobbes, Berkeley, Kant.
