Aeschliman Talks C. S. Lewis, The Abolition of Man, and That Hideous Strength
October 14, 2019
Host Andrew McDiarmid
Guests Michael Aeschliman
On this episode of
ID the Future, Michael Aeschliman, author of the newly revised and expanded sits down with host Andrew McDiarmid to explore Lewis’s The Restoration of Man: C. S. Lewis and the Continuing Case Against Scientism The Abolition of Man, its defense of natural law, and its bracing takedown of scientism.
Aeschliman says that Lewis did this using classic arguments not always popular in today’s intellectual climate, yet never refuted. As Aeschliman further notes, Lewis also powerfully illustrated the shortcomings and dangers of scientism in his final
Space Trilogy novel, That Hideous Strength.
