FoC 157: Elizabeth Anscombe: Philosopher, Mom, and Upending the Motherhood Narrative with Dr. Jennifer Frey

The Fountains of Carrots Podcast

Are women’s lives and aspirations over when they have children? Of course not. Our culture seems to claim two options: kids or career. But there are plenty of women who challenge this narrative (and plenty of people on both sides who are threatened when it’s challenged)! In this episode Dr. Jennifer Frey shares about an amazing woman who inspires her: famous Catholic philosopher and mother of seven, Elizabeth Anscombe. Dr. Frey is is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of South Carolina, a fellow of the Institute for Human Ecology at the Catholic University of America, and a fellow of the Word on Fire Institute.  Her writing has also been featured in Evangelization and Culture, First Things, Fare Forward, Image, Law and Liberty, The Point, and USA Today. She is also the host of a literature, philosophy, and theology podcast, titled Sacred and Profane Love. She lives in Columbia, SC, with her husband, six children, and six chickens. Today we’re discussing attitudes toward mothers in academic programs, journalism, and even the Supreme Court! We explore what makes Elizabeth Anscombe such an extraordinary philosopher and an amazing inspiration. We touch on why role models who are so important to us as women and mothers and how expectations about parenting have changed dramatically since Anscombe’s time. So grab a cup of tea and enjoy this lively conversation! Sponsor Today’s episode is sponsored by Evergreen Planner.

A Conversation With Jennifer Frey

Anchored

What does it mean to be happy? Is modern society only concerned with the superficial trappings of happiness? Dr. Jennifer Frey, professor of philosophy at the University of South Carolina and former collegiate professor in Humanities at the University of Chicago, joins Jeremy in a discussion on why the social sciences' attempts at quantifying happiness misses the mark, and the ways in which Plato and Aristotle's conceptions of human flourishing have much to offer the modern world.  Dr. Frey also discusses the opportunities that are lost when education sidelines the fundamental questions of human existence in favor of strict skills development. She also touches on philosophy's role within a higher education system increasingly focused on vocational training.

Jennifer Frey - Flannery O'Connor and the Vision of Grace

The Lumen Christi Institute

Flannery O’Connor is one of the most celebrated American fiction writers. Yet she has often been misunderstood by the very critics who praise her. O’Connor was sometimes called a hillbilly nihilist, but she responded that she was simply “a hillbilly Thomist.” In this talk, delivered February 13, 2020, at the University Club of Chicago, Dr. Jennifer Frey (University of South Carolina) explores the action of divine grace in the short stories of O’Connor, and how her vision of grace is inspired by the theology of St. Thomas Aquinas.
