Aaron Simmons: “The mountain will always win”

Furman University philosophy professor Aaron Simmons returns to the podcast to discuss his newfound love of mountain biking, taking his students to “dirt church,” Kant’s awareness of the sublime, grasping our own finitude, faith as risk with direction, liturgical practices on the trail, the vestments of protective gear, being charitably gnarly, whether it would be fun to go camping with Kierkegaard, and much more.
