Abstract

“Notes on the Nature of Reason” is an approximately 1,700 word outline of Lewis’s talk “The Nature of Reason,” which he delivered to the Socratic Club on 15 October, 1945. These previously unpublished notes emphasize Reason’s certainty, its inability to provide its own subjects, and the distinction between Theoretical and Practical Reason.
