Lesson Nineteen of God and His Creation, with Fr James Brent, OP, PhD, STL, Asst Professor of Philosophy, Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception, Washington DC.
Human beings do not invent the truth, but discover it. Skepticism and relativism are really forms of despair. In the philosophical tradition that comes down to us from Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, one of the fundamental convictions is that there is truth. Further, that this truth is eternal and that human beings are capable of knowing it.
