Our June, 2018 Lecture @ The Meeting House



[Updated 29 May]

The topic of our June, 2018, meeting is "C. S. Lewis on the Medieval Imagination: A Challenge to Modernity?"  The speaker will be Dr. Bill Davis.  Dr. Davis is on the faculty in the department of Philosophy, Covenant College.  

Synopsis:  In The Discarded Image, C.S. Lewis both describes and recommends the "model" that medieval authors took for granted.  He offers it as essential background for appreciating medieval literature, giving a rich account of a way of imagining human existence (its place in the cosmos, freedom, significance, and purpose) that is very different from ours today.  This talk will focus on aspects of the medieval model/imaginary that have been eclipsed, as well as joining with Lewis to ask whether we should lament what has been lost.

The Meeting House is located at 3912 Dayton Blvd, Chattanooga, Tennessee 37415.  The meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m.  The coffee shop will be open.  $5.00 admission at the door, thank you.
