Christian Humanist Profiles 188: Analyzing Doctrine

Download or Stream this Episode

In academic philosophy over the last century or so, the various thinkers in French and German and Slovenian traditions, even those who do not live in Europe, have fallen under the geographic label “Continental” while those influenced by English-speaking philosophy have taken on the name “Analytic.”  In my own theological education twenty years ago, German and French philosophy were the coin of the realm, and the same held when I moved to Georgia and started graduate studies in literature.  But Dr. Oliver Crisp wants to invite people like me and like you to reconsider the value of Analytic thought for Christian theology.  His new book Analyzing Doctrine brings the serious and deliberate investigations of Analytic philosophy to bear on core historical Christian doctrines to raise questions that we could all benefit from posing, and Christian Humanist Profiles is happy to welcome him to the show.
