Jonathan and Ryan dive into Alan Jacobs’s book The Year of Our Lord 1943: Christian Humanism in an Age of Crisis. This book stars C.S. Lewis, Simone Weil, W.H. Auden, Jacques Maritain, and T.S. Eliot, and on this episode of New Humanists, your hosts tease out the implications for our current transhumanist moment, hitting on technology, education, the family, and power. This is the first part of a two-part look into the Jacobs book.
