My recent post on John Locke’s Letter Concerning Toleration attracted the attention of Anthony Gill, the host of the Research on Religion podcast. It so happened that he had been considering doing an episode on Locke, and he asked me to come on the program to discuss this important figure. We recorded a conversation during the week of Thanksgiving, and the episode was published yesterday on the Research on Religion site.
I had a lot of fun with this, although I was flying by the seat of my pants. We did the interview on pretty short notice (about a week), less than two weeks after the birth of my fifth son; as a result, I wasn’t able to do any real preparation for it. Fortunately, I don’t think I made any major misstatements in the interview.
At any rate, if you have found this site via Research on Religion and are interested in my project to read through the Great Books of the Western World, please see the Great Books Project page.
