Paul Vitz is the Professor Emeritus of Psychology at New York University. He is a Catholic scholar, whose work explores the relationship between psychology and Christian faith. He has recently edited a book, The Complementarity of Women and Men: Philosophy, Theology, Psychology & Art, with contributions from some leading Catholic voices in the conversation: J Budziszewski, Sr Prudence Allen, Deborah Savage, and Elizabeth Lev. He joins me to discuss the book and the differences and relation between the sexes more generally.
Pastor C.R. Wiley joins me to discuss practical steps towards the recovery of the household in the modern world.
Any thoughts on the recent research on decreased rates of sex among under 30s, especially men? I would particularly be interested in any thoughts you might have on what it suggests about relations between men and women in society today.
I was recently invited onto the Via Media podcast by Gerald McDermott, to discuss aspects of a theology of the sexes. You can listen to the episode here.
One of my supporters has very kindly transcribed this video, on a biblical theology of the household. I don’t have time to transcribe my videos myself, so anyone willing to volunteer to transcribe one video every week or fortnight would be greatly appreciated! The transcript is very lightly edited at a few points for the purpose of comprehension.
Today I review Angela Nagle’s book Kill All Normies: Online Culture Wars From 4Chan and Tumblr to Trump and the Alt-Right. I discuss some of the dynamics of contemporary online culture, especially the way that gender shapes things.
I’ve followed Paul VanderKlay’s YouTube channel for some time. Paul is a minister in the Christian Reformed Church of North America, based in Sacramento. Seeing a profound interest in deep conversations with young men in particular following the rise of Jordan Peterson, he has made such conversations a key dimension of his ministry and now has a large following and extensive engagement with a demographic that so many other ministers are uncertain of how to reach. He recently invited me to have a conversation with him on his channel. We had a long call yesterday and this was the result.
