Professor of Christian Apologetics
As one of his central concerns, Scott challenges the common mindset in academia and the west that we cannot know things as they really are; instead, we only work with our interpretations. This pervasive view affects not only ethics and religion, but most every discipline. Yet, Scott has written extensively against this "constructivist" view, arguing instead that we can have knowledge in ethics, religion, and other areas, including the sciences. But this is due to the reality of what many deny to exist, namely, universals and essences. So, he has written against naturalism, nominalism, postmodernism, and critical race theory, which undermine what we know to be true. Additionally, he has written on human dignity, the moral argument for God's existence, progressive Christians and the emergent church, and the need to live in the fullness of Jesus. He also serves as secretary-treasurer for the Evangelical Philosophical Society.
