Slide 2

What is cleverness? "The capacity to see, appreciate, or express what is entertaining, amusing, confused, or crazy."

Slide 3

In a universe of Christian logic, does amusingness have a spot? Assuming this is the case. . . What reason does cleverness serve? Where do we discover silliness? Can it be gainful—even the foolish? Why might C.S. Lewis—Oxford teacher, obstinate pragmatist, and brilliant arguer of the Christian confidence (an intense thing without a doubt) invest energy in the happiness regarding cleverness?

As a Child Lewis\' dry mind created as a kind of extension to his sibling and over his dad, who could be sitting, Lewis composed "in his easy chair, now and again showed up less unequipped for comprehension anything as resolved to misconstrue everything." Childhood: the building pieces of giggling The cleverness the Lewis young men grew then was a thoughtful and defiant solid footing in rational soundness under his dad\'s "convoluted rationale."

"As he perpetually got legitimate names wrong (no name appeared to him less plausible than another). His textus receptus was frequently verging on unrecognizable. Let him know a kid named Churchwood had gotten a field mouse and kept it as a pet, and a year, or after ten years, he would ask you, \'Did you ever hear what was the fate of poor Chickweed who was so perplexed of rats?\'"— Surprised by Joy… by means of Surprised by Laughter… With this case to be up against, one can see the way to rationale and reason that Lewis liked to take. Be that as it may, his dad passed on to him an affection for comedic journalists (ex. Dickens) who might later impact the little Lewis to guide his peruser through his labyrinth of rationale by method for entertainment.

Slide 7

Surprised by Joy: As we\'ve talked about, after a stage to belief in a higher power and a bicycle ride to the zoo, Lewis at last turns this bliss, showed in his physical diversion and mind, to God. (For fundamental point, see beneath.) He understood that the wellspring of the delight was what he had been looking for the greater part of his years

Slide 8

Thus, he could see that the delight and giggling he discovered battling in WWI, perusing Dickens, or embellishment in his own particular stories were all a player in a more prominent happiness that could have been a declaration of God. Be that as it may, "there is euphoria in the move, however it doesn\'t exist for bliss." Humor, similar to any made great, can be degenerate (whoa! DCM!). Thus, watch it. In this acknowledgment, Lewis discussed a chain of importance wherein diversion bowed to love and afterward love to God. This implied one could be a piece of the chain by encountering any of these in life. He spoke a great deal more about their blending; for instance, how a mother giggles at a tyke out of her affection. Be that as it may, now I\'m stretching out beyond the slides… gracious dear.

Slide 9

Humor in Fun Lewis had an expansive perspective of cleverness that included significantly more than pleasantry, jokes, or droll comic drama. For Lewis, cleverness was a piece of the satisfaction in life ; from pots of tea in the patio nursery to pints of draft in the bar, from wind dashing through one\'s hair in a cruiser ride to an all around played session of chess.

Slide 10

In his stories, Lewis\' characters frequently participate in devouring, moving, singing, music, pursuing, chasing, clowning, and a thousand different exercises that demonstrate their extravagance in life—the points of interest of life.

Slide 12

Why Didn\'t We Think of That? "I am attempting here to avoid anybody saying the truly absurd thing that individuals frequently say in regards to Him: \'I\'m prepared to acknowledge Jesus as an awesome good educator, however I don\'t acknowledge His case to be God.\' That is the one thing we should not say. A man who was only a man and said the kind of things Jesus said would not be an incredible good educator. He would either be a crazy person—on a level with the man who says he is a poached egg—or else he would be the Devil of Hell."

Slide 13

Sarcasm Used to Challenge "Love anything and your heart will be wrung and perhaps broken. On the off chance that you need to ensure keeping it in place you should offer it to nobody, not even a creature. Wrap it painstakingly round with interests and little extravagances; keep away from all ensnarements. Lock it up safe in the coffin or casket of your childishness. In any case, in that coffin - protected, dull, unmoving, airless- - it will change. It won\'t be broken; it will get to be unbreakable, impervious, irredeemable. To love is to be helpless."

Slide 14

A Laugh at Contradiction "It is no great requesting a straightforward religion. All things considered, genuine articles are not simple...If we request something more than effortlessness, it is senseless then to grumble that the something more is not basic. All the time, in any case, this senseless system is received by individuals who are not senseless, but rather who, intentionally or unwittingly, need to decimate Christianity. Such individuals set up an adaptation of Christianity appropriate for an offspring of six and make that the object of their assault. When you attempt to clarify the Christian principle as it is truly held by an educated grown-up, they then whine that you are making their heads turn round and that it is very convoluted and that if there truly were a God they are certain He would have made "religion" basic, since effortlessness is so wonderful, etc...Notice, as well, their concept of God \'making religion basic\'; as though "religion" were something God designed, and not His announcement to us of certain entirely unalterable truths about His own particular nature."
