The Abolition of Man Reflections on Education with Special Reference to the Teaching of English in the Upper Forms of School

By C. S. Lewis

The Abolition of Man is a 1943 book by C. S. Lewis. Subtitled “Reflections on education with special reference to the teaching of English in the upper forms of schools”, it uses that as a starting point for a defense of objective value and natural law as well as a warning about the consequences of doing away with them. It defends “man’s power over nature” as something worth pursuing but criticizes the use of it to debunk values, the value of science itself being among them.
