Atko Remmel is Senior Research Fellow in the University of Tartu and University of Tallinn, Estonia. He has published on antireligious policy and atheist propaganda in the Soviet Union, (non)religion and nationalism, secularization and religious change, and contemporary forms of (non)religion and spirituality. He has carried out fieldwork among nonreligious population in Estonia and on people’s relationship with nature.
This chapter deals with the emergence of the concept “atheist spirituality” and proposes that it could be understood as a notion of meaning-making within an atheist worldview, or as a bridge-building strategy between religious and non-religious communities.
