TPS Meeting-October 4, 2011

This week’s paper details

Who: Josh Anderson

What: Intellectual vs. Emotional Doubt

When: From noon to 1pm

Where: Phil House

Why: Again, TPS is awesome

Abstract: A certain species of doubt—emotional doubt—often plagues the Christian by masquerading in the form of intellectual doubt. In order for the believer to grow through this type of doubting, he or she needs to be able to discern between the two. Therefore, we elucidate emotional doubt, offer criteria to distinguish it from intellectual doubt, consider some causes of emotional doubting, and offer some solutions to address these causes. I will especially look at the phenomenon of emotional contagion and introjection, to correlate emotional doubting with our brain’s empathy system

See you all there!
