    Becoming Modern: Recreating Past, Present and Future

    7:00 pmProfessor Meic Pearse | The Round Church, Cambridge

    Modernization – leaving the village for the cities; industrialization; working outside the home rather than in it; individualism and the severing of community ties – has been the defining human experience of the past two and a half centuries. This has had profound consequences for our sense of identity, and has opened the door to the rise of modern ideologies: secular metanarratives that claim meta-explanatory powers. It has also transformed what the past means for ordinary people – with consequences for how we view the present and the future. This lecture will explore some of the more important challenges this presents for a coherent, Christian view of the world, and of ourselves.

Project Abstract

Foundations seeks to outline the fundamental commitments of a Christian philosophy. We will explore questions like, how do we arrive at real knowledge? What is the nature of reality? How does a civilisation work? Developing a coherent world and life view is essential to address contemporary issues. The foundations project aims to spell out and develop some of the key intellectual commitments of a robust Christian philosophy.

Me, My ‘Selfie’, and I

Humans have always acted out of self-interest. However, in the modern period this has shifted to Narcissism. The modern person tends to use reality as a mirror with everything reflected back to the self. But will this lead to a ‘sickness unto death’ like Narcissus in the ancient Greek myth? (We apologise that we did not capture the conclusion to Andrew’s talk)
