  • The Pains of Animals: A Problem in Theology

    An Oxford don, C. S. LEWIS in 1940 published a volume entitled The Problem of Pain which attracted instant attention and which was followed by his still more widely read book on morality, The Serewtape Letters. One of the questions Mr. Lewis addressed himself to was: how to account for the occurrence of pain in a universe which is the creation of an all-good God, and in creatures who are not morally sinful. His thoughts provoked a counterinquiry by C. E. M. JOAD, Head of the Department of Philosophy at the University of London, resulting in this controversy which has been published in England in the columns of The Month.
