The Abolition of Man, C.S. Lewis
In this graceful work, C.S. Lewis reflects on society and nature and the challenges of how best to educate our children. He eloquently argues that we need as a society to underpin reading and writing with lessons in morality and in the process both educate and re-educate ourselves.
This book is paperback and is recommended reading for Hillsdale's free online courses, "Introduction to Western Philosophy" and "C.S. Lewis on Christianity"
“If someone were to come to me and say that, with the exception of the Bible, everyone on earth was going to be required to read one and the same book, and then ask what it should be, I would with no hesitation say The Abolition of Man. It is the most perfectly reasoned defence of Natural Law (Morality) I have ever seen, or believe to exist. If any book is able to save us from future excesses of folly and evil, it is this book”—Walter Hooper, American Author and literary advisor of the estate of C.S. Lewis
