THE CONVERSATION

Tomorrow, I am going to try to say a few things to set the stage for the conversation I suggested we have, about the theoretical presuppositions of competing ideologies. I am not really concerned about the labels we place on the different positions. Rather, I want to get beneath the labels to what underlies the positions. Perhaps the best way to proceed is for me to lay that out in a post, and then allow a couple of days for comments and guest blog posts and such before we move on. In the meantime, I will continue to comment on the passing scene. [I mean, can one really pass over in silence the touching romantic comedy of Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston?] Let's try it and see how it goes.
