This seminar compares two different worldviews: the secular skepticism of Sigmund Freud and the religious belief of C. S. Lewis. Our primary text is Armand Nicholi’s book, The Question of God, which compares the lives and writings of Freud and Lewis. We will also read Freud’s The Future of an Illusion and Lewis’s Mere Christianity. A PBS documentary featuring Nicholi and other Freud and Lewis experts provides an engaging introduction to these influential thinkers.
