Dr. Samuel Gregg of the Acton Institute has written an important new book: Reason, Faith, and the Struggle for Western Civilization. In my video interview with him, Gregg explains how Hebraic, Greek, and Christian thought led to the concept of logos and the Western understanding of reason.
There is a direct line from logos to Western ideas of political and economic liberty as well as Western insights on wider culture and art.
Contemporary trends against logos and reason undermine ordered liberty and human dignity, Gregg warns.
I was fascinated by Gregg’s observations, especially how heterodox Christianity minimizes the logos with sadly predictable social consequences. You will be fascinated too!
