Human creativity and the two roads to truth

from the series
Trinitarian Thinking

Tony builds a breathtaking theory of human creativity in this talk. He begins by critiquing the dominance of the scientific method as the only road to truth. He points out that this dominance has been hostile to faith, and has patronised faith as anti-intellectual. But he points out the limitations of scientific logic, and in particular, its anti-humanistic assumptions. Then he offers an alternative thinking methodology whose origins he finds in Aristotle, whose ultimate manifestation he finds in all of human creativity (including strategy) - and whose mandate he finds in Genesis 1 and 2 and the command to rule creation. This talk summarises Tony's PhD thesis. If anyone wants to explore further reading on this, email tony on
