More than a half century ago, C.S. Lewis warned about how science (a good thing) could be twisted in order to attack religion, undermine ethics, and limit human freedom. In the provocative new half-hour documentary The Magician’s Twin: C.S. Lewis and the Case Against Scientism, leading Lewis scholars explore Lewis’s prophetic warnings about the abuse of science and how Lewis’s concerns are increasingly relevant for us today.
The Magician’s Twin: C.S. Lewis and the Case Against Scientism received its television premiere on the NRB Network. The film now can be viewed for free on YouTube.
Experts featured in the video include Michael Aeschliman, author of C.S. Lewis and the Restitution of Man; Jay Richards, co-author of the New York Times bestseller Indivisible; Angus Menuge, author of Agents Under Fire; John West, editor of The Magician’s Twin: C.S. Lewis on Science, Scientism, and Society; Victor Reppert, author of C.S. Lewis’s Dangerous Idea; and C. John Collins, author of Science and Faith: Friends or Foes?
The Magician’s Twin: C.S. Lewis’s Case Against Scientism is the first part of a three-part video series that will explore C.S. Lewis’s view of science and scientism. The next two parts, which will explore Lewis’s views on evolution and intelligent design, are slated to be released during the first half of 2013.
The Magician’s Twin video is inspired by the book of the same name, which can be purchased right now at Amazon.com at more than 30% off the list price.
