What is Truth? Why do we think what we think is true? If life is solely ‘matter in motion’ then why do things possess quality, beauty and power? Why do we believe in virtue like love, sacrifice and redemption? If humanity is a result of deterministic, natural selection then everything we value in our lives is ultimately meaningless. But we know this type of modern, secular thought is flawed and self defeating. C.S. Lewis examines these ideas in his lucid essay about the reality of truth and the difference between looking along and looking at the human experience; and why the most accurate picture of something requires us to see both.
