In Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion, philosopher David Hume examines whether belief in God can be rational. The work takes the form of a debate between three characters: Cleanthes, who argues that the existence and nature of God can be empirically verified; Demea, who argues that God is completely beyond human knowledge; and Philo, a philosophical skeptic widely thought to represent Hume’s own beliefs. Much of the debate centers around Cleanthes’ presentation of the analogical argument ...
 
Piloted by its Oxford-educated host Spencer Klavan, “Young Heretics” explores the concepts of truth, beauty, and everything that makes Western culture great in the face of an increasingly hostile academia, media, and culture through which liberals guard the great works of the West behind lock and key to “protect” the next generation from the supposed racism, sexism, and homophobia of those that came before. "Young Heretics," in direct contrast to this, provides an open forum for exploring, u ...

Witches didn't exist, and yet thousands of people were executed for the crime of witchcraft. Why? The belief in magic and witchcraft has existed in every recorded human culture; this podcast looks at how people explained the inexplicable, turned random acts of nature into conscious acts of mortal or supernatural beings, and how desperate communities took revenge against the suspected perpetrators.
 
This podcast is and isn't a lot of things. It isn't the funniest podcast out there, or the best edited one, or one with a podcaster with the voice of an angel. But it is the result of a lot of work and research and I hope you enjoy it. Each week we take a different concept in political theory (free speech, campaign spending, right to bear arms, etc.) and look at its history and evolution in society and then we break apart the various issues and debates surrounding it. Lastly, we'll look at w ...

David Hume is one of the great philosophers of the Western intellectual tradition. His philosophical writings earned him lasting fame and renown; his historical writing earned his bread and butter. His "The History of England from the Invasion of Julius Caesar to the Revolution of 1688", published between 1754 and 1764, was immensely popular and Hume wrote that "the copy-money given me by the booksellers much exceeded any thing formerly known in England; I was become not only independent, bu ...
