And he brings up issues of science and magic, spirit and matter--and scientism. No study of scientism in Lewiss literature is complete without a long look at That Hideous Strength.This volume is a brief look at that nexus.ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Christos Jonathan Seth Hayward wears many hats as a person: author, philosopher, theologian, artist, poet, wayfarer, philologist, inventor, web guru, teacher.Some have asked, If a much lesser C.S. Lewis were Orthodox, what would he be like? And the answer may well be, C.J.S. Hayward.Hayward has lived in the U.S., Malaysia, England, and France, and holds masters degrees bridging math and computers (UIUC), and philosophy and theology (Cambridge).
