See-Through Morality: C.S. Lewis on Scientism
- Thursday, November 21, 2013
Right and wrong, he insisted, aren’t negotiable—not even in the name of science. We must not try to transcend Christian morality, because it’s what teaches us how to use science, and what true human flourishing looks like.
Or, as he writes in “The Abolition of Man,” “You can’t go on ‘seeing through’ things [like morality] forever. The whole point of seeing through something is to see something through it. To ‘see through’ all things is the same as not to see.”
As I said earlier, Lewis’s warning is more relevant today than ever before. So come to our store atBreakPoint.org, pick up a copy of “The Abolition of Man.”
