Philosophy, Politics, and the End of Liberal Arts Education and Q&A

Today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast includes the following topics:
Hank’s Prologue:

  • Hank highlights an article in the CHRISTIAN RESEARCH JOURNAL titled “Philosophy, Politics, and the End of Liberal Arts Education.” Marco Rubio used to joke that the job market for ancient Greek philosophers has been very tight for 2,000 years. According to Rubio, since welders make more money than philosophers, we need more welders. But what we really need are welders who have the capacity to untangle political rhetoric. We need people trained in the art and science of philosophy—people equipped with the kind of wisdom, knowledge, and understanding championed by Solomon. While vocations in science and technology are important, what is the value of cloning human beings, for example, if we lack the wisdom to navigate the moral quagmire of such radical biotechnology? The church and our nation would be well served if more Christians engaged the full spectrum of liberal arts and philosophical education.
