Latter-day Saint Theology (feat. James Faulconer) Season 4, Episode 9
February 18, 2023
Hosted by Stephen Betts.
Dr. James Faulconer, a Latter-day Saint philosopher and theologian now emeritus of Brigham Young University joins me to discuss “performative” or “scriptural” theology and how it helps illuminate Latter-day Saint scripture. In his recent book, Thinking Otherwise: Theological Explorations of Joseph Smith’s Revelations, Faulconer argues that Joseph Smith’s revelations addressed philosophical enigmas and dilemmas inherited from classical Christian theism, some of which dated back to the Presocratic philosopher Parmenides and his doctrine of the One.
