November 2013 will mark the 50th anniversary of the death of Cambridge University Professor C.S. Lewis. Best known for his children's stories and works of Christian apologetics, Lewis also was a trenchant critic in his books and essays of "scientism," the effort to apply science outside its proper boundaries. In this session, writers James LeFanu and John West will explore the relevance of Lewis's critique of scientism for our own day.
Speakers: Dr James LeFanu is a medical doctor, columnist for The Daily Telegraph and The Sunday Telegraph, and author of Why Us? How Science Rediscovered the Mystery of Ourselves. (Graduate of Clare College, Cambridge and Royal London Hospital,1974)
Dr John G. West, Ph.D., is Associate Director of the Center for Science and Culture at Discovery Institute in the United States. He is editor and contributing author of The Magician's Twin: C.S. Lewis on Science, Scientism, and Society.
