Stanley Hauerwas always has something fun to say. He is like a hot spice to the academic theologian world. A talk on politics reflecting on the actions of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and his actions to subvert the Nazi empire. Who can resist!
Dietrich Bonhoeffer is well known for his heroic opposition to the Nazis. Martin Hauerwas examines Bonhoeffer’s understanding of lying and why it’s appropriate to hold politics to a higher standard of truthful speech. This relationship between truth and politics is a particular challenge for democratic regimes. Series: Burke Lectureship on Religion & Society [4/2004] [Humanities] [Show ID: 8498]
