Radio Free Acton - Micah Watson

On this edition of Radio Free Acton, we’re joined by Micah Watson, the William Spoelhof Teacher-Scholar Chair at Calvin College, to discuss the views of C.S. Lewis on democracy, specifically as they relate to the area of education. Lewis was not a fan of democracy, and worried about the effect of democratic inclinations within a culture on the quality of education systems. Watson – joined by Acton Institute Senior Research Fellow Jordan Ballor and Director of Programs and Education Paul Bonicelli – explores the thought of Lewis on this vital topic.

You can pick up a copy of Watson’s book, co-authored with Justin Dyer, here: C.S. Lewis on Politics and Natural Law. And if you haven’t done so already, be sure to subscribe to Radio Free Acton on iTunes. You can also listen to the podcast via the player below.
