C.S. Lewis: The Abolition of Man Lecture 2 - Dr. Scott Masson (3 of 22)

Updated: Nov 4, 2022

Video from Dr. Scott Masson

"The third chapter of C.S. Lewis's The Abolition of Man is also its title. Lewis builds on the first two lectures, arguing what will happen if the educational paradigm of Gaius and Titius proceeds and the Tao, which he describes in Chapter 2, is not inculcated. It is not merely that students will lack moral fibre. They will be the subject to the experiments of the conditioners, and subject to their passions, passions unguided by any moral constraint. The scenario Lewis envisages is described in the fiction of his day, like Aldous Huxley's Brave New World or his own That Hideous Strength. But Lewis is suggesting that it isn't merely the stuff of science fiction.' from video introduction.
