T1 Fernando Savater A1 Films for the Humanities & Sciences (Firm), Films Media Group., Nuevo Mundo Visión., PB Films Media Group PP New York, N.Y. YR 2009 AB Sifting through questions surrounding oppression and terrorism, Spanish essayist and philosopher Fernando Savater has often analyzed religious dogma-studying those who promote it and those who oppose it. This program documents Savater's views on the social and intellectual wellsprings of terrorism and militant fundamentalism, as well as the eternal conflict between science and religion. The author of Ethics for Amador and The Task of the Hero examines both age-old and current tensions between inflexible ideologies and objective truth, with an eye on what he calls "truth in history." He also focuses on the limits of science and philosophy and the weaknesses of postmodern relativism.
