Book description

Conventional wisdom holds that C. S. Lewis was uninterested in politics and public affairs. The conventional wisdom is wrong. As Justin Buckley Dyer and Micah J. Watson show in this groundbreaking work, Lewis was deeply interested in the fundamental truths and falsehoods about human nature and how these conceptions manifest themselves in the contested and turbulent public square. Ranging from the depths of Lewis' philosophical treatments of epistemology and moral pedagogy to practical considerations of morals legislation and responsible citizenship, this book explores the contours of Lewis' multi-faceted Christian engagement with political philosophy generally and the natural-law tradition in particular. Drawing from the full range of Lewis' corpus and situating his thought in relationship to both ancient and modern seminal thinkers, C. S. Lewis on Politics and the Natural Law offers an unprecedented look at politics and political thought from the perspective of one of the twentieth century's most influential writers.

  • Offers a unique combination of two popular topics, C. S. Lewis and politics; this is the first book exclusively dedicated to C. S. Lewis' political thought
  • Appeals to a wide audience, including academics who wish to better understand Lewis and who also want to better understand Evangelicals, traditional Catholics, and other religious believers for whom Lewis is a significant influence
  • Provides insight not only into Lewis' thought, but also the religious and political thought of his significant and enduring audience
  • Addresses the challenges of pluralism and politics, providing a better understanding of how the role of Christianity in Western cultures has been shifting in recent decades
