    Aesthetics and the Knowledge of God

     

    with Matt Peckham

     

    on

    Monday, October 11th at 7:30pm BST

     

    Whether in story or poetry, through imagery or imagination, aesthetic experience brings significant meaning to our lives. But is this meaning merely subjective? Do aesthetics and the affections help the pursuit of truth or hinder it? And how might the Bible help us understand the interplay between 'head knowledge' and 'heart knowledge'?

     

    Join us as we consider the role that aesthetics plays in how we come to know things, revealing as we do the affective nature of knowing with its practical and theological implications.

     

    We hope you will consider joining us in person in the Round Church for this talk! A livestream link will also be added here closer to the event date for those who are unable to come in person.

We tend to think that bringing a child into the world is a good thing – something to be celebrated, in fact. This assumption is challenged by antinatalism, an ethical stance which is increasing in popularity. Antinatalists argue that procreation is in itself morally wrong, and should therefore be abandoned....

According to Oliver Wiseman, The Critic’s US Editor (‘Out of this world?’, March 2021), 66% of Americans believe that there is life on other planets, 57% believe there is intelligent life on other planets, and...

Kevin Moss is Director of Operations at Christian Heritage and a PhD candidate in intellectual history. I’m afraid I was a bit of a late developer when it came to reading Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s magnum opus, The Gulag Archipelago. In the end, won over I suspect by Jordan Peterson’s emphasis of its...
