A Valuable Kind of Heresy

Posted in church, non-fiction, philosophy at 8:13 am by Jerry

Here’s something from an article in my latest copy of Philosophy Now written by Grant Bartley (assistant editor):

Advances in rational understanding can be achieved in at least three ways:

  1. Through novel ideas popping up, their rationale unentangled by old proofs;
  2. Through the refinement of an existing set of ideas; or
  3. Through heresy

The article itself is called The Truth about Heresy? An interesting though somewhat muddled read about traditional heresy and contemporary heretics.
