Dr. Os Guinness’s deep concern is to bridge the chasm between academic knowledge and popular knowledge, taking things that are academically important and making them intelligible and practicable to a wider audience. While speaking on many college and university campuses, including Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Stanford and the University of Virginia, Dr. Guinness became compelled to write about the search for meaning and truth. In Walker Percy’s The Moviegoer, Binx Bolling notes, “The search is what anyone would undertake if he were not sunk in the everydayness of his own life. To become aware of the possibility of the search is to be onto something. Not to be on to something is to be in despair.” Much of Dr. Guinness’s writing and speaking is to put us on to something. In Mere Christianity, C. S. Lewis wrote, “If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.” Various faith, religious and worldview communities define this other world differently: Buddhists and Hindus call it Nirvana or samsara; Jews, Christians and Muslims call it Heaven and Paradise or Sheol or Hell; and the atheist calls it foolishness. Socrates said, “The unexamined life is not worth living” (Apology 38a). In this talk, Dr. Guinness addresses living an examined life in an unexamining age. Following the talk is a Q&A period.
