Magic and Applied Science

"For magic and applied science alike the problem is how to subdue reality to the wishes of men: the solution is a technique; and both, in the practice of this technique, are ready to do things hitherto regarded as disgusting and impious ... The true object is to extend Man's power to the performance of all things possible." -C.S. Lewis, The Abolition of Man, chapter 3
