In today's episode, Becket chats with Carl Trueman about his book "The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self," which explores how we got to this strange place in culture, going all the way back to 18th century philosopher, Jean-Jacques Rousseau to the Romantic poets, Nietzsche, Darwin, Freud, and more. We discover through these key historical figures how our modern world was shaped and the dramatic effects their ideas have had on our culture today including the previously incoherent phrase, "I am a woman trapped in a man's body," and how this phrase came to be known as coherent and meaningful in our world. You will be surprised how far-reaching these ideas are and how they are in the social imaginary whether we realize it or not. This episode will help you understand how we got to the chaos and confusion of our culture in the 21st century.
