Oleksandr Filts-Paventskyi:
Trust as a concept and practice
20 October
Shertytsky Center
room 127

Trust is usually regarded as a path to faith, which might seem illogical because trust is primarily rational by its nature while faith is irrational. The other difference between the two lies in the realm of practicality: trust is essential for safety in relationships between people. Psychologists believe that trust is a natural emotion typical for newborn babies helping them bond with caregivers. Faith, on the other hand, works internally as a means of bonding with ideas. It provides the basis for the views which we might or might not use for practical purposes. Faith doesn’t come into relations between human beings. The talk will also touch upon the interaction between trust, faith, and ethics.
