Fr Barron gives a brief background of Aristotle's approach to understanding things. Aristotle propsed that to properly understand something you had to understand its four causes; the material cause, the formal cause, it's final cause and the efficient cause.
Fr Barron proposes that today's modernists and scientist have only focused on investigating and understand only two of the causes; the efficient and material causes.
Disregarding the form and final causes has created a chasm in their understanding which has made their ideas implode on self rather than grasp the grandeur and beauty of what God has created.
It is an intriguing video in that we can extrapolate from what Fr Barron is proposing to other actions going around in our world, e.g., abortion, wars, hunger, and maybe get a glimmer of understanding of why people have such confused consciences.
