A worldview is the lens we use to interpret the world around us. It influences every aspect of our lives–from how we choose careers, to how we vote, to how we interact with both strangers and friends.

Because worldviews often conflict, people think and act differently from one another. Understanding different worldviews helps us have thoughtful dialogue about life’s deepest questions and a respect for the inherent dignity of every human being.

Praxis Circle created Building Worldviews to do just that: interview expert thought leaders about their perspectives on economics, politics, philosophy, religion, social issues, and more in order to expose our community to many diverse worldviews.

Listening to others and learning how to think critically is how we build strong worldviews–which in return helps us to better pursue truth, freedom, and human flourishing.

    Roger Scruton - Episode 3: Why the rise of populism in the U.S. and Europe?

    Roger Scruton - Episode 3: Why the rise of populism in the U.S. and Europe?

    From philosophy to the sacred, part three of our interview with Sir Roger Scruton now turns to a discussion on politics. As a British outsider looking in, Scruton examines the uniqueness of the  American political system, our culture (defining it as “ghost-haunted”), and the connection between Donald J. Trump and Brexit. Finally, Scruton offers an answer at the very end of our episode to the question: “Are you optimistic or pessimistic about America?”
     
    Other topics we cover: Is there a spiritual world? What are your thoughts on trans-humanism and cloning? Are good men necessary to control evil men? Listen to find out more!
     
    Sir Roger Scruton was an internationally recognized British philosopher, author, and professor with a Ph.D. in philosophy from Cambridge University. He was knighted for services in philosophy, teaching, and public education in 2016 and published over fifty nonfiction and fiction books. Praxis Circle interviewed Scruton because of his commanding knowledge of Western philosophy, his highly developed philosophical and theological anthropology, and his extensive service to the protection and preservation of Western civilization. This is one of Scruton’s last recorded interviews before his sudden passing from cancer in 2020.

    Roger Scruton - Episode 2: What defines personhood?

    Roger Scruton - Episode 2: What defines personhood?

    “Lifeworld,” “worldview,” “conservative,” “the sacred,” “oikophilia”–a word Sir Roger Scruton coined himself—what do they mean? In part two of our interview, Scruton defines his terms and sheds light on some of today’s most discussed philosophical topics. We also have a conversation on the importance of the law of noncontradiction to reason; his personal move towards Christianity and political conservatism; and finally, what makes a human being a person.
     
    Other topics we cover: What is your worldview? What are the fundamental concepts that define humanity? Who has been the most harmful philosopher to date? Listen to find out more!

    Roger Scruton- Episode 1: What is truth and reality?

    Roger Scruton- Episode 1: What is truth and reality?

    Praxis Circle had the honor of conducting one of Sir Roger Scruton’s last interviews before his passing from cancer in 2020. Listen to part one for a conversation on philosophy, the pursuit of truth, and several dual issues: foundations and constructions, elitism and anti-elitism, and a particularly poignant distinction between a culture of repudiation vs. affirmation. While weighty topics, Scruton offers thoughtful answers that can help us understand and navigate today’s often troubling times. 
     
    Other topics we cover: Who began modern philosophy–Descartes or Kant? Do philosophy and worldview need foundations? Is truth-seeking part of worldview? What is cognitive dualism? Listen to find out more!
