Podcast: David Baggett on the Failure of Secular Ethical Theories to Account for Human Value and Dignity

On this week's episode, we get a special preview of Dr. Baggett and Dr. Walls' upcoming book, God and Cosmos: Moral Truth and Human Meaning. In the first part of a two part series, Dr. Baggett takes on a wide array of secular ethical theories and explains how each fails to provide an adequate explanation for human value and dignity.

In part 2, we take aim at the views of Erik Wielenberg. Dr. Wielenberg is a top-notch philosopher and atheistic moral realist. His new book, Robust Ethics, is a serious piece of philosophy. Nevertheless, Dr. Baggett has some objections about Wielenberg's view as it relates to human value. And we’ll be hearing those objections this week.
