A Philosophical Walking Tour with C. S. Lewis: Why it Did by Stewart Goetz

By Stewart Goetz

even though it has been nearly seventy years due to the fact that Time declared C.S. Lewis one of many world's so much influential spokespersons for Christianity and fifty years considering that Lewis's demise, his impact is still simply as nice if no longer higher this day.

whereas a lot has been written on Lewis and his paintings, nearly not anything has been written from a philosophical point of view on his perspectives of happiness, excitement, soreness, and the soul and physique. therefore, nobody up to now has well-known that his perspectives on those issues are deeply attention-grabbing and arguable, and-perhaps extra jarring-no one has but accurately defined why Lewis by no means turned a Roman Catholic. Stewart Goetz's cautious research of Lewis's philosophical concept unearths oft-overlooked implications and demonstrates that it was once, at its root, at odds with that of Thomas Aquinas and, thereby, the Roman Catholic Church.
