    Brilliant Men Address the Greatest Questions of All Time C.S. Lewis meets Sigmund Freud. C.S. Lewis takes an unexpected seat when legendary psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud invites him over for a chat. Expecting to be confronted for satirizing Freud in his recent book, Lewis soon realizes there’s a much more significant agenda. On the day England enters World War II, the two men face off on the existence of God, love, sex, and the meaning of life… just weeks before Freud takes his own. Is there room between two Titans for a meeting of the minds.
