    Hume's Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion

    Unabridged

    6 hours 24 min

    David Hume's Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion had not yet been published when he died in 1776. Even though the manuscript was mostly written during the 1750s, it did not appear until 1779. The subject itself was too delicate and controversial, and Hume's dialectical examination of religious knowledge was especially provocative. What should we teach young people about religion? The characters ... Read more

    Dao De Jing

    by Lao Zi ...
    Narrated by Ray Childs ...

    Unabridged

    1 hour 27 min

    The Dao De Jing exists on the border between poetry and philosophy, embracing both mythos and logos. Its poetic form can stand alone, but it is enriched when its timeless ideas are analyzed and explained through careful scholarship. For example: He who knows others is knowledgeable. He who knows himself is wise. These words resemble Socrates' account of his own quest in Plato's Apology.Ancient ... Read more

    Reflections on the Mind of Plato

    Narrated by Ray Childs ...

    Unabridged

    3 hours 28 min

    "Plato was not a Platonist! I would like to show in the following audio that anyone who reads the dialogues of Plato without bias or an ax to grind will find a humorous, witty, pleasant friend and not a desiccated scholarly mandarin. Plato was an open-minded, tolerant, reasonable individual, not a tight-lipped, pietistic puritan. In a word, Plato was an Athenian, not a Spartan!"In the 24 centuries ... Read more

    Plato's Phaedrus

    by Plato ...
    Narrated by Ray Childs ...

    Unabridged

    2 hours 1 min

    Plato's dialogues frequently treat several topics and show their connections to each other. Phaedrus is a model of that skill because of its seamless progression from examples of speeches about the nature of love to mythical visions of human nature and destiny to the essence of beauty and, finally, to a penetrating discussion of speaking and writing. It ends with an examination of the love of ... Read more

    Unabridged

    2 hours 34 min

    Whitehead presented these three lectures at Princeton University in 1929. Although 85 years have passed, his central thesis and his analysis remain remarkably current. The scientific materialism that Whitehead opposed with such vigor continues to dominate in academic circles, and even now those who question that worldview are often accused of being antiscientific. This is especially true in ... Read more
