One of C.S. Lewis’s pet peeves was the phenomenon he called “chronological snobbery,” a concept other writers have termed “presentism.” The notion involves the smug certainty that today’s idea on anything are automatically improvements on what people in the past thought on the same subjects. This paper examines the concepts of presentism and how it relates to Lewis and current culture.
