About this Episode

Weaver identified philosophical and cultural trends bubbling in the 1940s that denied absolute truth and higher-ordered values. He saw universal narratives - like God or country or family - that provide meaning and coherence to the world falling under the attack of relativism. The consequence of these ideas, he says, is the cultural decline of the West.
