Symposia Episode Two: Apostasy is a Crime - Thomas Pink

"The European Conservative presents its documentary series, "Symposia," which explores the crisis of our civilisation and what rebuilding that civilisation might look like. In the second episode, Sebastian Morello, our senior editor, meets up with Professor of Philosophy at King’s College, London, Thomas Pink, in the heart of the Chilterns in England’s Home Counties. In this episode, Sebastian explores with Prof. Pink many topics among which are freedom and agency, Hobbseian anthropology, and the Church-State relationship. An unfortunate temptation for intellectual conservatism is that of only ever reacting against those forces of so-called ‘progress’ which aim to repudiate the civilisation that conservatives cherish. The imperative is not only to defend our civilisation but offer a positive case for the humane and meaning-driven future we want to build. In this series, Sebastian meets great thinkers of the day and—as the name of the series suggests—sits down, with good wine and good food, to converse with them in pursuit of the truth, in the context of fellowship and camaraderie." from video introduction
