Science needs its critics as much as any field of human endeavor does. Maybe even more so today.
C. S. Lewis’s classic science fiction tale is about the temptation to reject being human.
Scientism claims that science alone dictates the truth, although this system of thought depends on non-scientific reasons to come to such a conclusion.
As Michael D. Aeschliman notes, Lewis powerfully illustrated the shortcomings and dangers of scientism in his final Space Trilogy novel.
If there is one thing I could get people to read to understand our situation, it would be the essay “Willing Slaves of the Welfare State” by C. S. Lewis.
