a term coined by friends C. S. Lewis
and Owen Barfield
, is a logical argument (and usually when thus termed, considered an outright fallacy
) describing the erroneous argument that the thinking, art, or science of an earlier time is inherently
inferior when compared to that of the present. As Barfield explains it, it is the belief that "intellectually, humanity languished for countless generations in the most childish errors on all sorts of crucial subjects, until it was redeemed by some simple scientific dictum of the last century."
