Rank #5: What Did Philosophy Get from the Bible, and Why Should It Matter to Me?
“What Did Philosophy Get from the Bible, and Why Should It Matter to Me?”What does it mean to be a “person” and where does this concept come from? Most of us today would be surprised to learn that it comes from the Bible, and that philosophers did not discover it on their own. Hear why and how this idea came to take shape, and what might become of it, and of us, if we forget where we first learned it.
