The Magician’s Twin: salvation by scientism?

Here’s an interview with the editor of a new book on CS Lewis and scientism. The book’s title comes from the connections Lewis made between the twins of science and magic (similarities: 1. they can both function as a religion; 2. they both discourage questioning authorities; 3. they can both satisfy the quest for power). The video on the website is worth watching; it will give you a feel for some important historical/ideological issues raised in the 20th century and yet to be resolved.
