In our day, very few men believe in form or nature. Even many Christians are slow to believe that anything like form or nature exists, or we are loath to talk about nature simply because defining “nature” is a little bit tricky. The rejection of nature was the birth of the Modern Era. In this lecture, Joshua Gibbs gives a basic, easily understandable definition of form, and discusses a host of ways in which the rejection of form has given birth to a culture or mediocrity. Further, Gibbs describes ways in which beauty saves us (from mediocrity).
