- Program Description
Broadcast September 15 and 22, 2004, This four-hour program explores issues that preoccupy all thinking people today: what is happiness? How do we find meaning and purpose in our lives? How do we reconcile conflicting claims of love and sexuality? How do we cope with the problem of suffering and the inevitability of death? The series, based on a popular Harvard course taught by Dr. Armand M. Nicholi, author of the The Question of God, frames these issues through the eventful lives and challenging ideas of two great thinkers of the 20th century, Sigmund Freud and C.S. Lewis. The ideas of Freud, an atheist and lifelong critic of religious belief, and Lewis, a Christian and arguably the most popular and widely read proponent of faith based on reason, are brought together in a debate centering on the central question of human existence: Does God exist? The Question of God combines dramatic reconstruction with lively discussion led by Dr. Nicholi and commentary from other experts, and deals with a specific theme related to actual incidents and emotional turning points in the lives of Freud and Lewis.
