It was actually the sub-title that caught my eye:  C.S. Lewis and the case against scientism.  The author traces Lewis’ fight (as well as other theistic defenders) against the cold, scientific approach of the last two hundred years.  One example is the comparison between scientia (as homo sciens man is only a knower of facts) and sapientia (as homo sapiens man is a knower of meaning, purpose, value).  Lewis, and others (Milton, Hooker, Johnson, etc) reminded us that western tradition has always considered man a homo sapien because we’re made in God’s image.
