C.S. Lewis's The Abolition of Man

C.S. Lewis

C.S. Lewis’s 1943 The Abolition of Man is subtitled ‘Reflections on Education With Special Reference to the Teaching of English in the Upper Forms of Schools.’ It is a book about the power of education to shape the minds of individuals and improve society (or harm it, if badly done), and it covers everything from the scientific worldview at the time to philosophical arguments about right and wrong. Writing for a general audience, Lewis condemns the contemporary trend for teaching children that values are subjective, stressing instead that, for human society to flourish, people should understand that morality is, in fact, objective, and that a universal moral law exists.
