Jordan talks with Jennifer Herdt about the Reformed traditions understanding of natural law and virtue. What is natural law? What is Protestant natural law and modern natural law? Are these synonymous? Can Reformed thinking on natural law retrieve Thomistic and Catholic thought and be consistent? What is the conscience? How does it function for the Reformed tradition? What is synderesis? What is the legislative vs. judicial conscience? How does the Thomistic understanding differ from Calvins? Can virtue exist in a secular society? And much more.
