SITC host Eric Metaxas welcomes special guest Dr. John West for an interview titled The Magician’s Twin — C.S. Lewis on Science, Scientism, and Society. The event will take place at the Rainier Club in Seattle, Washington.
Beloved for his Narnian tales for children and his books of Christian apologetics for adults, best-selling author C.S. Lewis was also a prophetic critic of the growing power of scientism in modern society, the misguided effort to apply science to areas outside its proper bounds. Join Eric Metaxas as he explores C.S. Lewis’s life and legacy and his warnings about the use and abuse of science with Dr. John West, Vice President of Discovery Institute. West is editor of The Magician’s Twin: C.S. Lewis on Science, Scientism, and Society, co-editor of the award-winning C.S. Lewis Readers’ Encyclopedia, and author of Public Life in the Shadowlands: What C.S. Lewis Can Teach Us about Politics.
