GOVT162 CM - C.S. Lewis

C.S Lewis was one of the most influential thinkers and writers of the 20th century. Though perhaps best known as a defender of Christianity in an increasingly secular world, his writings cover a wide range of ethical, religious, and political issues. In this course we will cover his contributions to the debates over moral relativism, religion and science, the problem of evil, public policy issues (such as pacifism, crime and punishment, democratic education, and the welfare state), and the relationship of science to political rule. Readings will include essays, several of his well-known short books, the third volume of his science fiction trilogy (That Hideous Strength), his deeply allegorical The Great Divorce, and writings by those on the side on these great debates.
