C.S. Lewis: The Magician's Nephew - Dr. Scott Mason

Updated: Sep 19, 2022

"This lecture focuses on The Magician's Nephew, the first book in the Narnia Chronicles. It looks at the way in which C.S. Lewis distinguishes two types of 'magic', one rooted in the 'enchanted' created order and responsive to the creator (Aslan) and one rooted in technology, whose power over nature, including human nature, is solely motivated by power without restraint. It is an exposition of the theme of faith vs magic, the latter of which is morally indistinct from the desire for power over (human) nature that he noted was characteristic of the 'conditioners' in his lectures on The Abolition of Man.' from video introduction
