    The Nuts and Bolts of How We Know:

     

    A conversation with author and philosopher Esther Lightcap Meek

     

    on

    Monday, August 23rd at 7:30pm BST

     

    How does knowing really work, and why does it matter? What do most of us think knowing involves, and have we got it wrong? How does fixing our view of knowing pay off throughout our lives and work, offering healing and hope? What is it about this way of knowing that is so distinctive, different and delightful?

     

    Please join us as Professor Esther Lightcap Meek discusses these questions and more in conversation with Kristi Mair, and find out why Christians have the edge when it comes to knowing.

Antinatalists argue that procreation is in itself morally wrong, and should therefore be abandoned....

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...

Kevin Moss is Director of Operations at Christian Heritage and a PhD candidate in intellectual history. In the wake of the recent insanities on Capitol Hill, I have taken to re-reading Gertrude Himmelfarb’s excellent book, On Looking Into the Abyss: Untimely Thoughts on Culture and Society. Published in 1994, it is...

Kevin Moss is a Christian Heritage trustee and PhD candidate in intellectual history. One of the many joys of historical research is that one gets to meet great minds that have somehow fallen through the cracks of popular history.  One such, for me, has been Johann Georg Hamann (1730-88), a profound...
