C.S. Lewis, Science, and the Occult

YouTube

Award-winning British producer and director Norman Stone discusses his new biopic on C.S. Lewis, The Most Reluctant Convert, with Discovery Institute Vice President John West. The freewheeling conversation covers a wide range of topics, including Lewis’s view of science, the problems of reductionist science, Lewis’s attraction to and rejection of the occult (and the strange connection between the occult and scientific materialism), Bertrand Russell’s atheism, the women in C.S. Lewis’s life (not just Joy Gresham), and even the strange fate of C.S. Lewis’s old rooms in Oxford (you’ll never guess what’s in there now!). Plus, John tries his best to convince Norman that he should do a film version of Lewis’s sci-fi novel That Hideous Strength.
