C.S. Lewis and the Art of Disagreement

We live in a world where disagreements are sharp and people are easily offended. Does C.S. Lewis have anything to teach us on this? Michael Ward has written an interesting post for the Intercollegiate Review.

As a fellow of one of the colleges at the University of Oxford, I have the responsibility of being senior member (faculty supervisor) of two student-run societies, the C. S.
