C.S. Lewis on Natural Law and Liberty
Inaugural Presentation: Center for Western Civilization, Berkeley, California
Posted: Sat. December 12, 2015

Drawing on C.S. Lewis’s varied writings—fiction for both adults and children, non-fiction essays and scholarly treatises, poetry, and extensive correspondence with people from all walks of life—Independent Institute President David Theroux presents Lewis’s highly developed, Judeo-Christian philosophical insights into our relationship with power and human aspirations. From his declining an offer of knighthood to his keen essays such as “The Humanitarian Theory of Punishment,” C.S. Lewis’s timeless thinking provides rich insights into how to apply natural-law principles to our world and the challenges we all face today.
