By Stewart Goetz

even though it has been nearly seventy years on the grounds that Time declared C.S. Lewis one of many world's such a lot influential spokespersons for Christianity and fifty years considering Lewis's dying, his impression is still simply as nice if now not better at the present time.

whereas a lot has been written on Lewis and his paintings, nearly not anything has been written from a philosophical standpoint on his perspectives of happiness, excitement, soreness, and the soul and physique. for this reason, not anyone to date has well-known that his perspectives on those concerns are deeply attention-grabbing and arguable, and-perhaps extra jarring-no one has but safely defined why Lewis by no means grew to become a Roman Catholic. Stewart Goetz's cautious research of Lewis's philosophical inspiration 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.
