If you follow the news each day, it would seem that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican, and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, a Democrat, don’t agree with each other very often. However, C. S. Lewis makes the point, in “Breeze of the Centuries” (CUA Primer, page 14), that those of us who all live during the same time in history take for granted some assumptions so completely that we rarely bother to express them or to examine them. That means that even two people from the same time who seem very opposed to each other may actually agree on many unspoken things. In what ways to you think that Lewis gives a helpful remedy to such blind spots? Have you ever encountered the past in a way that made you look at things in a fresh way?
