Description

The Associated Press asks journalists to use the term “abortion rights” and Dictionary.com chooses “woman” as word of the year. In a world that challenges truth, how do we steward the gift of language? Kelsey and Jonathan explore words, worldview, and authority.

  • See this brief blog for an exploration of foundational epistemology (how we know). Because God is knowable, we are also knowable, and so is the world. Therefore our words have meaning.
  • Dive deeper into the concept of worldview and the hallmarks of today’s most common ideologies.
  • To expand your understanding and application of Aristotle’s Five Common Topics, find a systematic explanation here and model here.
