Is Zach Snyder telling the truth? What is true?
The Reclamation Society Podcast examines modern-day stories in an effort to define truth. What are the storytellers telling us is true about the world? In this episode, George Haraksin (philosopher and deep thinker) and Jay Sherer (executive director of the Reclamation Society) ask:
- What does Man of Steel tell us is true about spirituality? Is Superman a "type of Christ" or a "Christ-like" figure?
- What does Man of Steel tell us about human beings and their relationships? What does it say about our own quest for identity?
We share our thoughts, but we'd love to hear your thoughts as well. Please comment below!
