Episode 124 - Naturalism Through Narrative, Part 6

April 09, 2012

Naturalism Through Narrative: Knowledge, Ethics, and Identity in the Creation of Meaning 

Part six of a multi-part course probing the boundary lands between humanism and the arts. In August 2008, the Center for Inquiry – Transnational in Amherst, New York, presented this course by secular humanist activist Judith Walker. It was a course offering of that summer’s Center for Inquiry Institute. A former higher education attorney and onetime vice president for development of the University of Colorado Foundation, Walker examines how philosophy and the arts—in particular, the narrative tradition—can inform one another to build a secular humanist approach to life that is affirming and exuberant without being spiritual.

Poor presentation by Ms. Walker.  Little substantive value; warmed-over ideas of others presented through a sophomoric delivery that made me wince.  I couldn’t easily shut it off as I was on my bike for most of it, but I will not be tuning in to another “lecture” by Walker.
