Manage episode 298393376 series 2892335
Building on the picture of human rationality we presented in episode 18, we focus our attention on human rationality and Value, which is central to ethics. We argue that value is the very substance (not matter) of our experience of the world, that even perception is inextricably bound to value. As a consequence, we find that value exists in the same sort of paradoxical reality as the Incarnation itself - both natural and supernatural, human and divine. While we are responsible for recognizing and ordering our values into a hierarchy, we are also constrained by the reality of value itself. We are, that is, both free and determined.
