Ep. 15: Rhetoric, pt 1. (25 min) MP3 Dr. Ron Muller and Mast. Bobby Kinkela discuss the art of rhetoric and how it developed from ancient oration from Aristotle onto the present day. The main purpose of rhetoric is to explain the good of one’s own position, and so rhetoric is a good tool in itself, but it can be used in sinful ways. The discussion goes in depth into different rhetorical devices. Then we start to get into responsible rhetoric. This is a part 1 of 2 podcast on Rhetoric.
Ep. 14: Kant & Relativism, pt 2. (25 min) MP3 Kant’s relativism continues looking into the topics of how to interpret different cultures, universal maxim as a guide to the laws of morality (that in every similar situation, people should do the same thing… which gets into rationalization of moral law), and categorical imperative, We also get into Kant’s understanding of human dignity and how this compares to the Catholic Christian understanding of human dignity based upon St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body. This is part 2 about Kant and Relativism.
