But Lewis claimed in his argument from reason that if such materialism or naturalism were true then scientific reasoning itself could not be trusted. Victor Reppert believes that Lewiss arguments have been too often dismissed. InC. S. Lewiss Dangerous Idea Reppert offers careful, able development of Lewiss thought and demonstrates that the basic thrust of Lewiss argument from reason can bear up under the weight of the most serious philosophical attacks.

Charging dismissive critics, Christian and not, withad hominem arguments, Reppert also revisits the debate and subsequent interaction between Lewis and the philosopher Elizabeth Anscombe. And addressing those who might be afflicted with philosophical snobbery, Reppert demonstrates that Lewiss powerful philosophical instincts perhaps ought to place him among those other thinkers who, by contemporary standards, were also amateurs: Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Aquinas, Descartes, Spinoza, Locke and Hume.

But even more than this, Repperts work exemplifies the truth that the greatness of Lewiss mind is best measured, not by his ability to do our thinking for us, but by his capacity to provide sound direction for taking our own thought further up and further in.
