Modern Man and Reality: The Transcendent God and Self Absorbed Man

In this episode, Dr. Benjamin Smith and Jason discuss a paper presented by Jason at the 8th Annual Symposium on Advancing the New Evangelization at Benedictine College in Kansas. We discuss:
– Cardinal Ratzinger’s “eclipse of the sense of God”
– Technology and the Human Person
– Social Media
– The subjectification of reality
– The need for Metaphysical Realism
– Realism and the nature of things
– Realism and Contemplation
– The Primacy of the Creed
– On the Creed, “the faith which it professes is reality, not merely the content of Christian consciousness.” (Schonborn and Ratzinger, Christoph and Joseph. Introduction to the Catechism of the Catholic Church. San Francisco: Ignatius Press, 1994, 30.)
