Many people instinctively think of medieval ways of thinking as old, dusty, and out of date. But what if some of those ideas are anything but: not the opposite of modern, but hyper-modern: post-modern, even? That’s one of the ideas explored in a new book: The Medieval Mind of C.S. Lewis. Today’s guest is the book’s author: Dr. Jason Baxter, a UD alumnus and Associate Professor of Fine Arts and Humanities at Wyoming Catholic College. We discuss the book, which you can learn more about below, as well as particle physics, astronomy, Dante, and much more.
