Philosophers & Religionists

Dr. Sean Michael Lucas wrote an interesting post that attempts to get to the heart of Dan Brown’s Angels and Demons, the best-selling book the movie version of which is currently in the theaters. He says the best way to critique a work like Brown’s is not to correct each fictitious claim point by point but to get at the dualistic, relativistic and pluralistic philosophy behind it which he attributes to Immanuel Kant, identifying it as the source of modernity’s false distinction between faith and reason, religion and science. You can read his post here.
