Dr. James KA Smith - Part 4



Are we enlightened since the Enlightenment?

A conversation with Dr. James KA Smith

Episode Description:

Join us as we conclude our interview with Dr. James KA Smith, a philosophy professor at Calvin College, and a speaker on college campuses across the country. On today's episode, we ask questions about whether or not the Enlightenment project has really made us enlightened human beings, and are science and faith opposed to one another.

Episode Notes:

  • For more on Dr. Smith, visit: jameskasmith.com
  • In this episode, we make reference to another book by Dr. Smith called Who’s Afraid of Postmodernism?
  • In this book, Smith argues that the work of French postmodern philosophers such as Derrida, Lyotard, and Foucault (whom many assume are adversaries of Christian beliefs) might actually be allies to a Christian critique of modernism.
