Discusses the concept of hnau as developed in Out of the Silent Planet. Identifies Platonic and medieval ideas of the Rational Soul (and its faculties of intellectus and ratio) as applied to Malacandra. Sees Out of the Silent Planet as expressive of the apprehension of spiritual truth through Reason; Revelation is saved for Perelandra.
