Truth: Shocking & Traumatic, Paradigms & Frameworks Change
Dr. John Caputo, Founder of the Weak Theology Movement and Professor of Theology, Religion, and Philosophy at Syracuse University and Villanova University joins the program to discuss the nature of truth. How it can be both shocking and traumatic for people leading to societal chaos and avoidance of the truth. It also leads to new paradigms, framework changes, and growth. His views on truth are insightful and grounded in decades of study into philosophy and theology. Later in the interview we discuss what he believes Jesus meant by the Kingdom of God and his views on capitalism.
