    Mortalism: Readings on the Meaning of Life.Peter Heinegg (ed.) - 2003 - Prometheus Books.
  3. Airy Nothings: Religion and the Flight From Time.Peter Heinegg - 2013 - Upa.
    Even as the number of unbelievers continues to rise, religion in America still gets unwarrantably good press. Unfortunately, the central religious concept of the “sacred” proves, upon closer inspection, to be fictitious. This book surveys the various traditional “fortresses” of the sacred and finds them all empty and indefensible.

  4. Bitter Scrolls: Sexist Poison in the Canon.Peter Heinegg - 2010 - Upa.
    This book is a broad survey of our 'sacred texts,' both Holy Writ and secular masterpieces, whose canonical status often exempt them from hardnosed, commonsense criticism. A frank look at this literature is necessary and reveals a stunning combination of bias and blindness toward women.

    Ecology and Social Justice: Ethical Dilemmas and Revolutionary Hopes.Peter Heinegg - 1979 - Environmental Ethics 1 (4):321-327.
    The destructive tension between human needs and environmental conservation arises from flaws in our political and economic structures. Oppression of people and devastation of nature go hand in hand, and the root of both these evils is the denial of otherness. The ecology movement is basically a movement of liberation, and is in league, de jure and de facto, with other liberation movements, since it seeks to promote the rights ofthe nonhuman world. In this context, subjugation of the Other is (...)

  8. God: An Obituary.Peter Heinegg - 2009 - Hamilton Books.
    This book is a satirical-analytical view of monotheism in our time. Building on the work of both the great traditional unbelievers - Hume, Mill, Nietzsche, and Freud, among others -and contemporary critics - Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Ibn Warraq, etc. - Heinegg exposes the intellectual and moral bankruptcy of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

  9. Oh, Wait-Now I Get It: Essays in Popular Philosophy.Peter Heinegg - 2007 - Hamilton Books.
    Like war and politics, philosophy is too important to be left to professionals.

In fact, the entire contemporary cultural scene from the perspective of a thoughtful amateur philosopher is brought forth within this book. Recalling Neitzsche's dictum that all philosophy is also confession, Professor Peter Heinegg begins with some autobiographical pieces on his background, which include (...)
