This is a blog to discuss philosophy, chess, politics,
C. S. Lewis, or whatever it is that I'm in the mood to discuss.
I was intrigued by Lewis's mention in the review of one of my favorite books, Flatland, by Edwin Abbott. This 1884 novel about a 2-dimensional universe and its inhabitants' encounter with our own 3-dimensional world, as well as with those of the 1-dimensional (Lineland), and even zero-dimensional (Pointland) worlds, has held a place of honor on my bookshelf ever since I first read it sometime in the late 1960s. (I still have the very copy I bought way back then!)It inspired me to google "Lewis Flatland", and was amazed at how much that slim book may have influenced Lewis's thought. See HERE.Jezu ufam tobie!
