We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.
The Question of God
C.S. Lewis and Sigmund Freud Debate God, Love, Sex, and the Meaning of Life
For all the variety of specific religious beliefs, there are fundamentally only two kinds of people: believers and non-believers. In the 20th century, no spokesman was more prominent for non-belief than Sigmund Freud, and nobody argued for belief more successfully than C.S. Lewis. Indeed, their arguments are remarkably parallel, and equally wide-ranging. From pain and suffering to love and sex, from God to morality, Lewis and Freud carefully argued opposing positions. After years of studying both men, and teaching a popular course at Harvard comparing the two, renowned psychiatrist and educator Armand Nicholi has gone public. Nicholi is a guide to the Great Debate, letting each man speak clearly and concisely. Drawing on published and unpublished sources, including wide access to Freud's letters, Nicholi offers a gem of a book that strikes at the deepest chords in our souls.
