Dr. James KA Smith - Part 2



Why care about philosophy?

A conversation with Dr. James KA Smith

Episode Description:

We continue our conversation with Dr. James KA Smith, a philosophy professor at Calvin College who recently visited Ohio State to speak about his book titled, You Are What You Love. On our episode today, we discuss why the average person on campus should care about philosophy perhaps more than they do, and we ask more about Dr. Smith’s thoughts on living life in a secular society.

Episode Notes:

  • In this episode, we make reference to Dr. Smith’s book called How (Not) To Be Secularhe describes this book as “your hitchhiker's guide to the present."
  • Dr. Smith’s book seeks to summarize and popularize another work by philosopher Charles Taylor called A Secular Age
  • For further study, Colin Hansen has edited a new release also reflecting on Taylor’s work called Our Secular Age
