Michael Ward(The link to the presentations given on September 11, 2021, are available to members of the C. S. Lewis & Inklings Society. Go to www.cslis.org for membership information.)
Join a day of free webinars by the foremost scholar of the writings of C. S. Lewis this Saturday, September 11. Michael Ward, author of After Humanity: A Guide to C. S. Lewis’s The Abolition of Man, guides participants in this free dAfter Humanity book jacketay through one of C.S. Lewis’s most widely admired but least accessible works, The Abolition of Man. In it Lewis asks, “When we say something is right or wrong, are we recognizing a reality outside ourselves, or merely reporting a subjective sentiment?” Lewis, author both of sharp-edged philosophy and, in works such as The Chronicles of Narnia, universe-expanding fantasy, argues powerfully against subjectivism and for the objectivity of right and wrong. He warns us about the poison of subjectivism in a way more relevant to our “post-truth” twenty-first century than to the WWII years when he originally presented it. Go to cslis.org to learn more and register for this morning and early afternoon event.
