In this episode, we are bringing you a conversation with Stephanie Slade, the managing editor of Reason Magazine, and Eric Kohn, the director of communications here at Acton. In this episode they discuss the philosophy of fusionism.
Slade writes that Fusionism is the marriage of two value sets: liberty & virtue. “Liberty – in the classical sense of freedom from aggression, coercion, and fraud; and virtue – in the Judeo-Christian sense of submission to God’s commands.” In this unifying value set, we can see fusionism as a “distinct philosophical orientation unto itself.”
