Summary

Listen to a special two-hour preview of 'The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self,' including the book's introduction and first chapter. Historian Carl Trueman analyzes the development of the sexual revolution as a symptom, rather than the cause, of the human search for identity.

Show Notes

Modern culture is obsessed with identity. Since the landmark Obergefell v. Hodges Supreme Court decision in 2015, the topic of sexual identity has dominated both public discourse and cultural trends. Yet no historical phenomenon is its own cause. From Saint Augustine to Karl Marx, various views and perspectives have contributed to the modern understanding of the self.

This special two-hour episode includes the introduction and first chapter of The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self: Cultural Amnesia, Expressive Individualism, and the Road to Sexual Revolution in which historian Carl Trueman analyzes the development of the sexual revolution as a symptom, rather than the cause, of the human search for identity. He surveys the past, brings clarity to the present, and gives guidance for the future as Christians navigate the culture in humanity's every-changing quest for identity.
