If anyone is still reading this blog, I plan on beginning to write on here again. Expect posts related to my just-completed B.A. Honours thesis called A Restless Faith Seeking Reason to kick off catch-up-with-Matt’s-life mode here. Let’s begin with this audio file of my thesis presentation.
The full and very descriptive title of my thesis is A Restless Faith Seeking Reason: An exploration of themes in postmodern philosophy as they pertain to understanding the relationship between faith and reason. I drew largely on the work of John D. Caputo, Merold Westphal and James K.A. Smith to show that philosophical postmodernism is far from the bogeyman that many make it out to be. Indeed, it says many things that we need to take to heart.
Below is a link to the audio file of the presentation of my thesis to the SSU community on April 17. I haven’t listened through the whole thing, but I think that I managed to clean it up decently. The introduction is done by my supervisor and all-around-great-guy Jeremy Wiebe (no relation), and my presentation proper begins at the 6:40 mark.
I’m not going to post the pdf of the thesis itself here, but if anyone is interested, you may find my email address on my about page and ask me nicely that way. Also, if interest is expressed, I might throw up the QnA session which followed the reading.
