The editors of this volume offer up the following rumination on education and intellectual pursuit when addressing Lewis’ narrative poem Dymer:
Educational institutions should be a place where the truth can be robustly pursued. Hopefully, some truths will actually be discovered; however, these can always be explored more deeply and applied more widely. We do not get last words about anything, but that does not mean we cannot have sure words about some things. It is the sure words that keep us from becoming relativists; it is the fact that we cannot discover a last word about anything that prevents us from becoming tyrants.
The Soul of C.S. Lewis, p.49
