Thanks to CS Lewis Doodle’s you tube channel you can find the recreation of the original broadcast talk made by C.S. Lewis during World War II. This broadcast formed the basis of Chapter One of the book “Mere Christianity”. You can read excerpts from the book here: http://www.amazon.com/Mere-Christiani… You can find the doodle of the Lewis’ second talk here, called ‘The Reality of the Moral law”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LqsAz… as well as other awesome doodle’s about other topics.
Some helps: These doodles are really teachers’ tools, and require someone to breakdown to students some of the ideas touched on very briefly in the doodle.
Summary of the doodle below:
6 August1941 – “Right and Wrong – A Clue to the Meaning of the Universe” – C.S.Lewis on BBC radio
- Things we say to each other… “How would you like someone to do the same to you.”
- The expectation we have on each other to behave in a certain way.
- Often we don’t argue that the law is wrong but rather give excuses as to why we are excused.
- “Law of fair play, decent behaviour or morality.”
- Right and wrong used to be called the Law of Nature. It means the Law of Human nature. They called it this because they thought everyone should know this law.
- People argue that we have had different moralities over time and different cultures… this is refuted.
- What happens if we don’t believe in right and wrong?
- When we try give excuses for why we don’t fulfil expectations we are proving that they exist.
