Mystic or Lunatic? C.S. Lewis and the Curious Case of Ezekiel Bulver
In 1941 C.S. Lewis described the wish to write a biography on the life and thought of Ezekiel Bulver, a man who he claimed was responsible for the foundations of 20th century thought. Foundations that ultimately undermined the legitimacy of thought.
In this seminar, I’ll be looking how Lewis’ satirical reflections on Bulverism have a surprisingly contemporary significance, cutting against the various claims of Identitarianism with an argument for the universal dimension of Reason.
Along the way, we’ll also assess Lewis’ attempt to ground Reason in a transcendent source. An argument that foreshadowed his famous, and controversial, debate with Elizabeth Anscombe.
