Alex J. O’Connor is a philosophical commentator and debater with over 230,000 subscribers to his videos on YouTube. A self-proclaimed atheist, Alex argues against theological apology, as well as discussing a range of philosophical topics such as the existence of free will, the nature of morality, and freedom of speech. Alex is currently reading philosophy and theology at Oxford University.
Alex J. O’Connor offers a means to ground ethics in a way that allows us to determine what people should and shouldn’t do as a matter of fact, whilst dispensing with terms like ‘good’ and ‘bad.’ The concept of good may be delusory, but ethics does not have to be.
