A Psychosis of Culture – Freedom Feature with Iain Benson

by

What happens when fundamental freedoms are not explicitly protected? And can we find any hope or humour in the current situation? Listen as Barry W. Bussey interviews legal philosopher and scholar Dr. Iain Benson.

Dr. Benson has written extensively on religion, secularism, and the “language of values” as opposed to virtues. He has appeared before all levels of court in Canada and assisted in drafting the South African Charter of Religious Rights and Freedoms. He is currently a professor of law at the University of Notre Dame, Sydney, Australia and Professor Extraordinary, University of the Free State, Bloemfontein, South Africa.

Dr. Bussey and Dr. Benson co-edited Religion, Liberty and the Jurisdictional Limits of Law (LexisNexis, 2018).
