Quotable: James K.A. Smith

“Since its early beginnings, Charles Taylor notes, modernity has been marked by a rejection of teleology, a rejection of the notion that there is a specified, normative end (telos) to which humanity ought to be directed in order to enjoy the good life. And this rejection was driven by a new notion of “libertarian” freedom, which identified freedom with the freedom of choice.”
James K.A. Smith, Desiring the Kingdom, 175.
