Beloved for his Narnian tales for children and his books of Christian apologetics for adults, best-selling British writer C.S. Lewis also was a perceptive critic of the growing power of scientism in modern society, the misguided effort to apply science to areas outside its proper bounds.
In a new book, The Magician’s Twin: C.S. Lewis on Science, Scientism, and Society edited by CSC Senior Fellow John West, contemporary writers* probe Lewis’s prophetic warnings about the dehumanizing impact of scientism. The CSC has also produced a short documentary film, The Magician’s Twin: C.S. Lewis and the Challenge of Scientism, which highlights some of the themes developed in the book.
The event will include a short presentation on the book, a screening of the film, followed by a lively discussion with CSC Senior Fellows John West and Jay Richards.
Guests can register for the pre-event dinner and film, or the film screening & dessert only. Pre-release copies of the book will be available for purchase at $20 each (tax included, retail $24.95). The cost is $100 for the dinner (beginning at 5:30pm) and film, which includes a pre-release copy of the book ($24.95 retail). The cost is $15 for the dessert and film only. Doors for the film open at 6:45pm. You can use our online form to register for the event now, or call Donna Scott at (206) 292-0401 ext. 128.* In this wide-ranging book of essays, contemporary writers probe Lewis’s prophetic warnings about the dehumanizing impact of scientism on ethics, politics, faith, reason, and science itself. Issues explored include Lewis’s views on bioethics, eugenics, evolution, intelligent design, and what he called “scientocracy.” Contributors include Michael Aeschliman, Victor Reppert, Jay Richards, and C. John Collins.
