We think of the nature as a “resource.” Hear why C.S. Lewis would probably have chosen a different word to describe the natural world. Hear how his view of nature – influenced by his study of the Middle Ages – led him to some views of animals that ran counter to the opinions of his day. Think about why animals are represented so well in media and literature made for children. Guests: Michael Muth, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Wesleyan College Robert Velarde, author of Conversations with C.S. Lewis Paulo Ribiero, Professor of Electrical Engineering at Calvin College Louis Markos, author of From Achilles to Christ: Why Christians Should Read the Pagan Classics Jerry Walls, editor of C.S. Lewis as Philosopher
