Phillip Cary teaches philosophy but also thinks and writes a lot about Christian theology. In this course Cary explores the concept of truth, which is a philosophical and logical concept. He opens with some of the deep theological issues about who God is as truth. God is one who is true to His word. To get to those deeper and more profound issues about the nature or concept of truth, Cary goes over some confusions about the concept of truth, which he labels relativism. He talks about why relativism about truth is a mistake and why understanding the concept of truth will lead us deeper into our relationship with God who is the truth in person.
Phillip Cary (PhD, Yale University) is a professor of philosophy at Eastern University in Pennsylvania as well as scholar-in-residence at the Templeton Honors College. He is the author of three critically acclaimed books on the life and thought of Augustine.
