A Restorationist Views the Modernist/Post Modernist Debate. (Presidential Address).
Flinders, Neil J.
The nation's schools and society in general face serious problems that are largely rooted in moral and spiritual issues. Modern philosophy has led to a secular culture in which the existence of a divine God has been rejected, and man has become his own God, his own standard of measurement. These issues are addressed from the point of view of a philosopher who is also a Mormon and who believes in the literal restoration of God's plan of salvation as it was taught to Adam and Eve and later proclaimed by Jesus Christ and the Mormon Prophet, Joseph Smith. Restorationist claims are applied to education, and discussed in terms of the philosopher's own personal beliefs. (DB)
