The Abolition of Man
by C.S. Lewis
Number of pages: 42
Abolition is a short philosophical work about moral education. The context of Lewis's book is British education in the 1940s. One of Lewis's chief points will be that moral education, with the same basic content, is found all over the world and at different times. The last thing in the world Lewis is trying to do, is to impose his values. The moral code is not the invention or property of any one person or movement or even civilization. It is objective. Because it is found everywhere, Lewis can turn to ancient Chinese authorities such as Confucius and Lao Tzu, or to authorities from many other places and times; they all teach the same basic traditional code of morals. This traditional morality has often been called the Natural Law in Western philosopy.
