Rozum wobec żałoby: argumenty apologetyczne C.S. Lewisa w obliczu dotkliwej straty. Część II. Żałoba

Słowa kluczowe: Clive S. Lewis, Christian theism, naturalism, Christian apologetics, grief, reason


The Part I discussed Lewis’s anti-naturalistic arguments from the existence of morality, reason, desires and numinous experiences. In Part II these arguments are contrasted with what Lewis wrote about God, faith and life after death in the period following the passing of his wife, a great loss for the thinker. It is shown that Lewis’ case does not fit the model, where it is assumed that religious faith flourishes if the role of reason is being limited, or that various antinaturalistic claims are more likely to be accepted, if the reason is somehow „stifled”.
