This episode we discuss a 'theology of wildness', especially as it applies to artistry and beauty.  It's broken into two 'chapters':  1) Arabesque vs. Extermination; 2) Animals Inside Us.  Enjoy.

In this episode we talk about our need for 'alethic' (truth-acquiring) and 'ludic' (playful) tools for doing theology well. This leads us into beginning to talk about 'aesthetics' (theory of beauty and artistry) in theology where we consider the integration of Ikon and Logos, Image and Word, Artistry and Reason.

Title: Prolegomena for Boys and Girls part 2

Some things we chat about this time round:

'Prolegomena' or 'first theology'

A bit of recommended reading for those interested in historical theology

The main point discussed is: if theologising makes me like a cosmonaut plying the dark starways in awe and wonder, then what comes next? Where does such astronautical theology lead?

Books referenced:

Proslogion by Anselm
