A Conversation with Richard Norman
From the archives
Among those who have never heard this recording, I could have included myself until an hour ago. The conversation took place not long before I fell ill for a period of years as a result of exposure to especially toxic molds (as recounted in Roland in Moonlight), back in early 2014. By the time it appeared, I was far too sick to care, or even to remember that the conversation had taken place.
In any event, it was a good exchange, I find, with a very gracious and intelligent atheist thinker. I revive it and post it here because it covers many topics that I will be addressing here in several articles and recorded conversations in weeks and months to come: atheism and agnosticism, classical theism, the metaphysics and ontology of such theism, the “hard problem” of consciousness, and the relation between faith and moral commitment.
