Podcast: Process Theology and Mormonism

In this two-part episode, Mormon Matters host Dan Wotherspoon and philosophers James McLachlan and David Grandy discuss process theology and LDS connections and differences, focusing mostly, however, on ways that engaging process thought has pushed each of them into new views of or deeper dives into Mormonism and its intuitions and sensibilities about God, humans, and the natural world. The discussion includes some “teaching” of process theology and its metaphysics (and panelists give plenty of alerts when they are about to go nerdy or get all jargony), but for the most part it stays rooted in broad territory, connecting with the history of thought, problems with classical science and philosophy and mechanistic views of matter, and exploring the kind of openings into which process and LDS thought both wade.
