Join the Center for Science and Culture for the FREE film screening of The Magician’s Twin on Friday, September 14th. The event is being sponsored by Graham Memorial Presbyterian Church in Coronado, CA (Tenth Street and C Ave.).

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 free 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.
