Challenges to Humanity

Paul Louis Metzger: People Are More Than Commodities

Podcast Icon
Ways to Listen

In the Christ and Culture podcast with Ken Keathley and Benjamin Quinn, we explore how the Christian faith intersects all avenues of today’s culture through conversations with leading thinkers.

Today’s Episode:

We live in a culture of commodification. What challenges does this present to human personhood? Dr. Paul Louis Metzger has written extensively about the perils of otherizing, objectifying, and “thingifying” other people. But this conversation isn’t just theoretical for Dr. Metzger; it’s personal, as he’s navigated these questions with suffering in his own family. (The conversation starts at 4:45.)

Plus, in “Headlines” (1:15), Dr. Fuz Rana previews his talk about technology at Exploring Personhood: Challenges to Humanity. And in “On My Bookshelf” (27:35), Dr. Metzger recommends some books he’s reading right now.
