21st Century Enlightenment

Too often, I think people approach podcasts and related interviews/stories as a doctrinal statement, but it would be better to think of them as provocative statements that help to animate a discussion that would not begin otherwise.

Such is the case with this lecture and animation.  It is certainly a stretch to speak of a “21st Century Enlightenment”, but it cause us to become more aware of the impact of individualism and relativistic points of views.  That is to ask what constitutes a functional society or a sense of autonomy, and how might empathy and compassion fit into our world?
