"The Abolition of Man" and "That Hideous Strength": Not as Unwise but as Wise--R

Episode 24

May 11, 2022 Speaker: The Rev. Brian K. McGreevy Series: C. S. Lewis

Episode 24: Not as Unwise but as Wise: Reflections from C.S. Lewis's The Abolition of Man and That Hideous Strength

In Chapter 14, Mark's imprisonment takes a new turn, as he is subjected to the "Objectivity Room" with the aim of eliminating his emotions and indeed his humanity through exposure to deformed architecture and art which possess no objective beauty or truth. Jane has a vision, followed by a discussion with Ransom about the created order of masculine and feminine. She then encounters Christ in a profound way. The scene moves back to the N.I.C.E. in Chapter 15, where Ransom has managed to get Merlin hired as an interpreter to work with the tramp whom the N.I.C.E. directors have mistaken for Merlin.
