Marilynne Robinson on The Daily Show

Novelist Marilynne Robinson was on The Daily Show last night to discuss her latest book, Absence of Mind, a nonfiction work on the relationship between science and religion.

Robinson—whose last two novels were about a preacher and another preacher—tells Jon Stewart that the two fields need not be at odds.

A more complex way of thinking is required, she says, “for the sake of good atheism, and for the sake of good religion.”
