Ep. 9. Walt Whitman and C.S. Lewis on Keeping the Soul of the Republic

What role do the arts and literature play in a democracy? What are the root causes of the political, social, and economic issues plaguing the United States today? Is it possible that the key to solving America’s problems does not depend upon electing one party or the other, but in developing citizens both morally and spiritually? In this episode, Eduardo, Andrew, and Bryan discuss Walt Whitman’s Democratic Vistas and C.S. Lewis’ lecture Men Without Chests in an effort to answer these questions.
