Those of you who have read The Abolition of Man may remember Lewis’ contention that the modern world is rejecting ancient truths once shared by all cultures and religions, an aspect of natural law, of cosmic order known to all. He called it (for lack of better words) the Tao. This is a conviction I share, deeply, because it was contemplation of natural law which drew me to God in the first place, through Stoicism. I cannot but believe that the spirit of God shines through all cultures as surely as the sun shines upon the whole earth. The problem in attempting to study the commonalities is that the abyss of relativism always looms near. Are there studies of religion and philosophy which reflect on the shared truth of religions and philosophies which do not discount the fact that there is a “The Truth” that can be known, instead of everyone having their own equally valid truth?
