Item Description...
C. S. Lewis sets out to persuade his audience of the importance and relevance of universal values such as courage and honor in contemporary society.

Publishers Description

Both astonishing and prophetic, The Abolition of Man remains one of C. S. Lewis's most controversial works. Lewis sets out to persuade his audience of the ongoing importance and relevance of universal objective values, such as courage and honor, and the foundational necessity of natural law. He also makes a cogent case that a retreat from these pillars of our educational system, even if in the name of "scientism," would be catastrophic. National Review lists it as number seven on their "100 Best Nonfiction Books of the Twentieth Century."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A resource for educators  Jan 1, 2007
This little book had a profound effect on my philosophy of education - that education should be initiation into adulthood, not propaganda that conditions the young for some unexplained use. It's not an easy read, and may require several attempts, but is well worth the effort. A few excerpts, if I may:

"...a hard heart is not protection against a soft head."
"The heart never takes the place of the head: but it can, and should, obey it."
"We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst..."
"Their scepticism about values is on the surface: it is for use on other people's values: about the values in their own set, they are not nearly sceptical enough."
"To see through all things is the same as not to see."
Still a standard of its kind and perhaps the first  Dec 18, 2006
Mr. Lewis could see where postmodern thinking was leading our world long before many of us recognized it. His work provides a depth of understanding on the topic that is still unmatched after all these years. And what is truly refreshing is his manner of instruction, not condescending and preachy but as a concerned uncle sharing his observations with the next generation. We can listen, or we can reject, but we cannot ignore his concern that we might be grabbing for what seems attractive now at the expense of something priceless. He asks us to think without giving us the answer - letting us discover that for ourselves. Modern authors attempting to convey this message can learn from that example - that it is the still small voice rather than the clanging cymbals and pounding pulpits that give us pause to think. It is a difficult subject for any writer, and I think it may be impossible for any of us to follow in Mr. Lewis' footsteps. Perhaps it is best to not attempt to add to what he has already said and instead just refer back to this standard.
A quick reader on the failings of relatavism  Nov 4, 2006
While this was a quick read, it was a very good one. It may not have been as important read in it's time as it is today (If not for a brief mention in a newspaper article, I never would've discovered this book), but in the present, where objectivism is a dirty word, and relatavism is the default approach to thinking about everything, it's definately worth the hour or two of reading through it.

Many people are aware of the problems in throwing objectivism out with the bath water, but most people will not have been able to put that concept into the concise, clear, and convincing fashion that C.S. Lewis has in this book.
The State of Man  Sep 22, 2006
"The Abolition of Man" by C.S. Lewis is a somewhat quirky book of philosophy. Bearing the subtitle "Reflections on Education with Special Reference to the Teaching of English in the Upper Forms of Schools", it begins with a rather humorous critique of an English textbook. From there, with Lewis' disagreements with the suppositions set forth, it
becomes an examination of values, with particular emphasis on how these values are learned/taught.

This may not be a treatise for everyone. Lewis does not purport to be a historical scholar or even a philosopher, and infuses his message with his belief in Natural Law, or the Tao as he calls it. He argues
that any supposedly new belief actually stems from an older one; it is merely revised for a new generation. The problem arises when one tries to refute these basic suppositions and go against the Natural Law.

"The Abolition of Man" is a quick sketch of how Natural Law plays a role in every aspect of our lives, and in the various religions that abound in the world. It is an examination of how masking opinion as
philosophy can limit instruction and undermine education.
Short and oh-so-sweet  Jul 30, 2006
An extremely brief and extremely excellent book looking at the unknowing indoctination of youths through the education system and the problems that have come about by it.
