Class: Street-Level Christian Philosophy
Every Sunday, from 01/19/2020 to 02/09/2020, 11:00 AM - 12:30 AM
This free class, taught by Steve Schlichter, is a 4-week primer on basic philosophical ideas that aid in theology, apologetics, and devotion. Whether we know it or not, philosophy (like theology) is something we are always doing to draw implications and justify beliefs. We always ‘do’ philosophy but we don’t always do good philosophy. Philosophy is a very powerful tool and essential to loving God with all your mind, but can also be dangerous when employed by those who do not know they are using it.
This class will focus on practical applications of philosophy:
- Practicing basic rules of logic and identifying errors and biases in everyday, commonplace discussions on various topics
- Identifying philosophical arguments used by Jesus and the prophets
- Understanding different types of knowledge and how we use knowledge to justify beliefs
- Discussing and evaluating different types of apologetic arguments and learning to deal with skeptical objections
There is no textbook for the class.
