BiblioFiles #52: Faith and Reason


Is reason a reliable path to knowledge of God? Is faith a reliable path to knowledge of the world? The tension between faith and reason as a means to truth crops up all over the Western canon. In this episode, the CenterForLit crew tracks that conversation in the Great Books and attempts to battle it out for themselves.
