Episode 9: Not as Unwise but as Wise: Reflections from C.S. Lewis's The Abolition of Man and That Hideous Strength
After a recap of the main themes of The Abolition of Man, we move on to set the stage for That Hideous Strength, looking at the cosmology of Deep Heaven, the characters who appear in the first chapter of the book, and some themes from The Abolition of Man that begin to emerge even in the first chapter of the last of the Ransom trilogy, including an exploration of Lewis's under-appreciated essay, "The Inner Ring."
