Readers may remember an old post from 2012 where suggestions were made on the construction of a theology of escape or running away. There it was suggested that the desire for escape operating within popular culture, that in turn operated upon an impulse that the Christian tradition could and should affirm. This was developed further in a conference paper for the Centre for Theology and Philosophy at Oxford University in 2013.
Whilst the Oxford version might have been a bit too specialist, a more publicly accessible version was presented at the Dawson Society for Philosophy and Culture in Perth earlier this year. The podcast is now available at the Dawson Society’s website, which also contains a number of other prominent speakers on politics, literature and philosophy.
