In a sort of ghastly simplicity, we remove the organ and demand the function. We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.” –C.S. Lewis, The Abolition of Man

 

An American first edition printing of the esteemed academic and author Clive Staples Lewis’s, ‘The Abolition of Man.’ Eloquently written, the contents of this work are a compilation of three Riddell Memorial lectures delivered in February 1943 at the University of Durham’s King’s College. Within these lectures, Lewis eloquently focuses on the fundamental philosophical questions of value and morality and how they impact not only how to approach education but every aspect of the human experience. In his archived correspondence, Lewis himself declares this his favorite work of his non-fiction writings.
