Rejecting solutionism, the problems of the humane, and wise change.

Show Notes

We dig into the challenge of taking a non-solutionist approach and rejecting a technocratic view of the world… while not rejecting “interventions” and making real progress along the way.

Corrections

Stephen accidentally referred to Chris’ reference in his newsletter to C. S. Lewis’ foreword to St. Athanasius’ On the Incarnation as “On the Annunciation”—the annunciation is a related but distinct bit of Christian doctrine, when the Incarnation was announced (‘annunciated’) to Mary, the mother of Jesus.

Chris thought we talked about thinking-together-about-cell-phones in Season 4; it was all the way back in Season 3.
