A conversation with Dr. Peter Kreeft

Episode Description:

Dr. Peter Kreeft is one of the most influential Christian philosophers of his generation. He recently visited The Ohio State University to participate in a dialogue with an atheist chemist named Dr. Ivana Nikolic Hughes about the value of human beings. After receiving his PhD from Fordham University with post-graduate studies at Yale, he has been a professor at Boston College since 1965. Having written more than 75 books with more on the way, Dr. Kreeft has been a prolific author. So what has made Dr. Kreeft so influential? He is able to take very complex arguments and ideas, and yet simplify them in a compelling way, all without over-simplifying. Thousands of skeptics, spiritual seekers, and believers from around the world have looked to Professor Kreeft as a significant spiritual guide and resource. It is our privilege to share with you our interview with Dr. Peter Kreeft.

In Part 1, we ask Dr. Kreeft to reflect on his career as a philosopher, we ask him what he means when he writes that there is no such thing as “no philosophy” but only “good philosophy” and “bad philosophy”, and why one has to chose to begin the spiritual journey.
