The London Lyceum

Philosophy Podcasts >

The London Lyceum is a weekly conversation on analytic, Baptist, and confessional theology encouraging Baptists to think deeply and clearly. It hopes to foster depth and clarity by modeling habits of the mind for the Baptist. It hopes to encourage deep thinking through the Baptist confessional heritage, those documents that outline the basic beliefs of Baptist fidelity. It hopes to encourage clear thinking through precise thinking, which is common to analytic philosophy. It is nothing more than thinking in very clear and honest ways rather than vague tropes. For the very interested, "London" refers to our confessional Baptist crown jewel--the Second London Baptist Confession of Faith. "Lyceum" is just a fancy word for a place of learning--it was Aristotle's "academy."
