In this episode of the Apologetics.com Radio Show, Dr. Harry Edwards, together with Dr. Jacob Daniel and Lenny Esposito, discuss chapter four of Carl Trueman’s book “The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self” in which the author pins some of the West’s current cultural issues to the lesser known works of the Poets of the Romantic era. We will talk about some of the shaping ideas of Wordsworth, Shelley, and Blake and how they have forged a culture of self determination and emotivism.
