What relationship does faith have with the intellect? Does religion truly try to engage with the rational mind as Thomas Aquinas, John Calvin, and Alvin Plantinga would suggest? Or is the "F&M Complaint" from Sigmund Freud and Karl Marx correct in asserting that faith needs a "badly aimed intellect?" We will look at some of these views in this podcast, as well as the consequences of the faith-intellect relationship.
This is the second episode of a four-part miniseries about the Psychology of Faith.
