#006 - The Subtle Deer meets Jesus & Socrates
Oct 31, 2020 Season 1 Episode 6
Andrew James Brown/Caute

In recent weeks I’ve been trying to show various ways by which, and why, I think both our own liberal, democratic European and North American culture in general — and its liberal religious, Judaeo-Christian traditions such as the Unitarian one to which I belong — can confidently reconnect with its two major religious and philosophical fountainheads, namely, the human Jesus and Socrates and can do this without recourse to traditional Christian or Platonic beliefs.

Please feel to post any comments you have about this episode there.

I thoroughly recommend listers to get hold of Jane Hirschfield's wonderful collection of poems called Come, Thief (Knopf, 2011) in which The Subtle Deer appears.
