Episode 104: Mystery and Analogy- A Story of One Guy’s Pendulum Between Rationalism and Intellectual Cowardice
In this episode Andrew, in typical rambling story format, explores the nature of the relationship between the via negative and the via positiva, confidence in the analgia entis (the analogy of being) and the embracing of mystery, all by tracing out the phases in the narrative of his own struggle to find the balance of the intellectual and spiritual search.
“The Counter Position” is a new show by Andrew Whaley, founder of the apostolate Calix. Andrew brings his unique take on things from over 20 years of studying philosophy, theology, art, business, and design while processing those ideas daily over the bar in his coffeehouses with people of all walks of life, most of them being the unchurched/dechurched. Feverishly interested in everything, Andrew covers a wide array of topics, spiritual and otherwise, with his hallmark brand of edgy self-deprecating humor, intellectual speculation, and deep wonder. Interviews range from major Catholic figures and intellectuals to interesting characters with good story or an insight to bring. So, if you’re interested in a new form of Catholic radio, buckle up and tune in.
