P.M. Session: Sex, Lies, and Secularism
Pearcey will show how powerful and effective the two-story analysis is if developed creatively beyond Schaeffer's own writing and applied to some of the most controversial and cutting edge issues of our day. And what could be more controversial than issues of sex and reproduction, abortion and gender identity?
What we will find is that secular thinking on these issues is best understood precisely in terms of a pervasive dualism, and that Schaeffer's categories maybe the best tool for making sense of modern secular thought.
