No Self and Some Self: How Much Do Christians Want?

Runtime: 1:14:06

On March 23, Mark Heim, Samuel Abbot Professor of Christian Theology at Andover Newton Theological School, offered reflections on the kind of self that is implied by Christian theological terms and the ways in which this matches up with Buddhist categories. In particular, he explored the extent to which a "mimetic self" might correspond to both Christian and Buddhist accounts.
