Science and Scientism in the Age of COVID-19: Wisdom from C.S. Lewis

19,300 viewsAug 19, 2020


Seventy-five years ago, C.S. Lewis published his novel ”That Hideous Strength,” which explored the dangers of government in the name of science. What relevance does Lewis's advice on the promise and perils of science-based public policy have in the age of COVID-19 and beyond? Political scientist John West, editor of the book The Magician's Twin: C. S. Lewis on Science, Scientism, and Society, explores what we might learn from Lewis about the abuses of science during emergencies and how we might harness the benefits of science while avoiding the drawbacks of “scientism.” This online talk was originally delivered as part of a webinar held by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute on May 16, 2020.

Originally published in 2007, the book was re-released in an expanded paperback edition in 2015 featuring a new chapter on “Scientism in the Age of Obama—and Beyond.”

A Beautiful Nature montage with the words of Stuart Kauffman on the limits of reductionism. There is so much more to life than the REDUCTIONIST scientific view of the world.
