Podcast: The End of Nature?

Mere FidelityIn the latest episode of the Mere Fidelity podcast Matt Lee Anderson, Derek Rishmawy, and I are joined by Matthew Loftus. Together we discuss themes from the first chapter of Oliver O’Donovan’s book, Begotten or Made? In particular, we wonder about the status of nature in our society’s understanding, particularly in the light of our emphasis upon the artifactual. We discuss subjects such as same-sex marriage, the meaning of Babel, and the ethical difference between various forms of medical interventions.

One Response to Podcast: The End of Nature?

  1. It’s turned out to be a good day for my PC in that the sound is working and I have now, finally, heard your podcast – well, half of it and I will catch up on the rest later.
    The thought I’m holding just now is part of what you said : ‘…tyranny that can take over man’s nature and view it as raw material for human construction.’ I hope I jotted that down correctly.
    I like the podcast not only because of the content but also because of the medium – my listening comprehension seems to be infinitely better than my reading comprehension in relation to topics unfamiliar to me.
    I just noticed the podcast about N.T. Wright is also available now!
