Is Identity Politics the new religion? James Lindsay, Esther O Reilly and Neil Shenvi

Unbelievable?

Social justice, woke politics, intersectionality, patriarchy, white privilege and diversity. Critical Theory and Identity Politics have created a lot of buzzwords and debate lately. Atheist James Lindsay believes it amounts to a religion in itself. He tells of the hoax ‘grievance studies’ project he helped to pull off and engages with Christian thinkers Esther O Reilly and Neil Shenvi on whether Identity Politics amounts to a form of religion.

Later in the show Esther O Reilly returns for some commentary on the latest Jordan B Peterson controversy. Plus ticketing opens for The Big Conversation live in London, featuring Bret Weinstein and Alister McGrath in Conversation on Wed 8 May 2019.

Logos, mind and making sense of the world – Raymond Tallis & David Bentley Hart – Unbelievable?

This fantastic discussion shows how much more we could know. I’m a growing fan of Dr Hart. This is a discussion between an atheist and Christian who agree that a materialist explanation of consciousness does not adequately explain our experience of consciousness yet disagree about the spiritual implications.

This is an outstanding discussion.

Logos, mind and making sense of the world – Raymond Tallis & David Bentley Hart

Unbelievable?

Einstein said: “The most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is comprehensible”. In his new book ‘Logos: The mystery of how we make sense of the world’ atheist philosopher Raymond Tallis explores various explanations of why we have minds capable of understanding the universe. 

US theologian/philosopher David Bentley Hart author of ‘The Experience of God: Being, Consciousness, Bliss’ joins the conversation to debate whether God is the ground of consciousness and our sense-making abilities.
