The postmodern continues to become the operating logic, which if done wisely, is a good thing…
“So reality is not simply out there, waiting to be uncovered. ‘Truth is not born nor is it to be found inside the head of an individual person, it is born between people collectively searching for truth, in the process of their dialogic interaction,’ Bakhtin wrote in Problems of Dostoevsky’s Poetics (1929). Nothing simply is itself, outside the matrix of relationships in which it appears. Instead, being is an act or event that must happen in the space between the self and the world.”
How about less bombs and more visas?
A very interesting take on objectivity and knowledge…RonH, thoughts?
Proteins and stability…and…whirlwinds…Burk–I’m sure you would agree…wow, you are agreeing with other Christians…pretty cool…
The mistaken notion that truth arrives, fully-formed, and all we need do is access it.
“To begin with, it will require us to reject the predominant idea of truth as something that arrives fully formed on our front porch each morning, or that is piped into our laptops, our phones, our crania.”
This looks like an interesting book and one that might confirm the irony inherent in the claims of evangelicals and fundamentalists regarding how anti-modern they are or how their views and faith mirror the ancient/early church. Nothing could be further from the truth—they are entirely modern and the event of their origin, in fact, birthed the modern world.
The nationalists are now in a fight with the globalists…I will make the popcorn.
