    #13 Dan Sheffler: Logos, Beauty and Christian Participation

    In this conversation with Professor of Theology & Philosophy, Dan Sheffler, we discuss many of the Greek concepts that we take for granted in our world today. You will learn what words like "cosmos & logos" mean, and why they matter for your day to day life. Dan is a phenomenal teacher who has a gift of making complicated ideas relatable and enjoyable, rather than just speaking over all of our heads.----more----Connect & Follow Dan Sheffler:- Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmBBekndCkznzG24DUs0jgA- Twitter: https://twitter.com/DanSheffler?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor Support Wisdom Collective:- https://www.patreon.com/WisdomCollective Connect and Listen on Other Platforms:- Best contact on Twitter https://twitter.com/keeppdxbeard- Available on YouTube: https://youtu.be/yk5C2UuUOOU- Available on Google Podcasts: https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0...

    #12 Larry Sanger: Wikipedia & Information Politics

    #12 Larry Sanger: Wikipedia & Information Politics

    Dr. Larry Sanger is a co-founder (or as he likes to call it "ex-founder") of Wikipedia who just came out with a book about the development of the revolutionary company and where it is today called "Essays on Free Knowledge: The Origins of Wikipedia and the New Politics of Knowledge" Larry and I discuss not just what Wikipedia was originally slated to be, but much more on what it is today (especially some of it's negative influences and practices in culture). It is one of the most highly trafficked sites online today, and it has a tremendous influence on our everyday life and politics in ways many of us don't fully understand.Follow Larry's work:- Latest Book: https://www.amazon.com/Essays-Free-Kn...- Twitter: https://twitter.com/lsanger?ref_src=t...Support Wisdom Collective:- https://www.patreon.com/WisdomCollectiveConnect and Listen on Other Platforms:- Best contact on Twitter https://twitter.com/keeppdxbeard- Available on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cnxbYbHcboA- Available on Google Podcasts: https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0...
