    The Radical Christian Enlightener:

     

    Exploring the Subversive Thought of Johann Georg Hamann

     

    with Dr John Betz

    on

    Monday, July 5th at 7:30pm BST

     

    Hamann is the key Enlightenment thinker that you don't generally get to hear about. He had critiqued Immanuel Kant's Critique of Pure Reason before that seminal work was even published. He analysed the key, self-defeating weaknesses in Moses Mendelssohn's capitulation to a secular worldview, and predicted the danger that this would lead to for the Jewish people in Germany. He was admired by Goethe, Schelling, Schlegel, and Kierkegaard, and was a significant inspiration to that great man's philosophical work.

     

    Hamann is a great example of how Christians engage thoughtfully with culture: could he be a model for us, as we seek to be salt and light in a collapsing society?

Christian Heritage Webinar – Obedient Subversiveness: How the Bible Creates Cultural Critics

If Christians sometimes fall short of practising discerning cultural engagement, Dr Chris Watkin argues that it is because they have wandered away from the nature and teaching of the Christian Scriptures. In this webinar, Chris explores how the Bible embodies and encourages cultural engagement of the broadest and most penetrating sort, revealing how we can become wise cultural critics.
