Philosophy can be complicated. All the -isms attached to words like rational, relative, material, and positive make understanding difficult. What do these words mean and why do they matter?

This seminar taught by Pastor Tim Price approached the -isms from a sequential, historical perspective to show how important ideas developed and where they came from. By understanding these philosophies we can understand our world better, and understand why people think the way they do. It also helps us to understand the relationship between men’s thoughts and ideas as they relate to the teaching of the Scripture, and to be able to contrast God’s thoughts against man’s thoughts.
