A Discourse concerning Unlimited Submission and Non-Resistance to the Higher Powers: With some Reflections on the Resistance made to King Charles I. And on the Anniversary of his Death: In which the Mysterious Doctrine of that Prince's Saintship and Martyrdom is .   The book almost has more to say about epistemology and logic than about the philosophy of religion. A good clear headed introduction to the application of logic to religion, and to why pluralism is fine for matters of culture and taste but not for matters of truth and concrete facts/5(9).

Its point is not to attain religious truth but, instead, to understand how truth in religion is possible. There are stronger and weaker senses in which a theory of meaning is “empirical,” according as the factual conditions required for significant truth-claims are more or less stringent.   Free will is at the very core of the message of the entire Bible.

the value of truth to life. Brushing away truth in the rush and tumble of life is somehow wrong—and we know it. If so, there must be another way of life that seeks, honors, and is willing to submit to truth, especially concerning matters of supreme consequence.

This orientation requires a kind of courage—. The key to the invention of free speech was the recognition of pluralism — the fact that, in any human population, there will be people with irreconcilably different understandings of the truth.

“A meticulously curated and definitive edition of Foucault’s Grenoble lecture and of his legendary Berkeley seminars on the courageous practice of free speech, ‘Discourse and Truth’ provides an intimate, often moving glimpse into Foucault’s thought and person at the end of his extraordinary career.

A Berkeley chalk artist perfectly articulated the sentiments of the free-speech opponents when he wrote, without irony, “Free Speech Kills.” I am moved to agree that free speech does indeed kill, but in a very different manner from what its opponents have in mind: it kills stupidity, sloth, corruption, small-mindedness, pride.
