A challenge to C.S. Lewis by Peter Milward( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the many-sided genius of C.S. Lewis, two main facets stand out. The first is the creative imagination of the storyteller, deriving from Teutonic and Classical sources. The other is the sturdy rationalism and erudition of the medieval scholar. Author Peter Milward emphasizes the latter in his latest book, A Challenge to C.S. Lewis. As a young Jesuit, Milward was one of Lewis's students who heard the eminent medieval scholar draw upon the dim recesses of Northern learning and Greco-Roman mythology to make his subject lucid for his listeners. After himself becoming a professor at Sophia University in Tokyo, Milward continued a dialogue with his former lecturer through a lengthy correspondence. With this book Milward challenges some of the presuppositions of Lewis's scholarship. With all the medievalist's talent as a scholar, Milward maintains, there remains the defect that, as a Protestant with roots in Northern Ireland, Lewis was unable to enter sympathetically into the Catholic mind of medieval Christendom. According to Milward, it is significant that in his lectures on "Prolegomena to the Middle Ages" Lewis laid more emphasis on the pagan elements in the medieval mind than on their more characteristic Christian elements, as if the latter had no need of explanation to a modern audience. Yet in his more popular and less academic writings as an apologist for the Christian faith, Lewis assumed that the majority of his readers would be more or less ignorant of the teachings of Christianity. Here the "mere Christianity" professed by Lewis was, Milward argues, in effect a Protestant side of Christianity, placing him on the modern side of the Great Divide ushered in by Martin Luther for Europe and by Henry VIII for England. Thus, the author states, there is a deep contradiction at the heart of all Lewis's academic writings, in that while Lewis set out to expose the medieval view of the world as (in his words) a "discarded image," he remained out of sympathy with that view in its basically religious features. Milward, therefore, calls for more analysis of this contradiction in Lewis's writings, in the form of a challenge to intellectual debate such as Lewis himself enjoyed so much in his Oxford days

The secret life of insects : an entomological alphabet by Peter Milward( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Every science, including the study of insects, may have circumscribed limits, but its deeper principles open up new worlds of possibility. Milward uncovers these hidden principles by examining the daily lives and habits of insects. His studies lead him to fascinating speculations, taking the reader into the realms not only of literature, as suggested by the subtitle, but also of philosophy and theology. When Milward discusses what everybody knows about insects and what he has personally observed, he relates insects to human life in general. His insights help us feel a certain fellowship with the insects, or at least with some of the more familiar insects. He does not let us forget that there is an important difference between human beings and insects. Human beings think. It is our ability to think that makes us what we are, but it is thinking that enables us to discover our affinity with insects. "The Secret Life of Insects" does not probe into the hidden lives of insects or treat them as individuals. His main interest is the light insects may throw on our human experience, and the assistance they may lend us as we seek to transcend our human experience. Milward aims at the level of common knowledge. In contrast to entomological scientists, Milward finds shadowy glimpses of hidden meaning in the insect world. These intimations or shadowy glimpses reveal thoughts and possibilities that will extend the human imagination. As a consequence, this work will inspire philosophers, as well as general readers interested in reflecting on the profundity of ordinary life."--Provided by publisher
What is a university? by Peter Milward( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is a university? Is it the buildings, the professors, the students or the subjects taught there? Or a combination of them? Or is it an idea which embraces all these, but is larger than the sum of all?" "Einstein described a university as 'a place where the universality of the human spirit manifests itself'." "This is not the modern attitude where the emphasis is on the acquisition of knowledge to fit students for jobs in the economy. The author questions this rather limited, utilitarian view of human aspirations and university education. He argues that we need to reconsider the nature and purpose of a university in the light of the more universal ideal of 'wisdom'. To bring precision to the argument, he proceeds by a series of questions and answers."
