The Abolition of Man by C.S. Lewis

Published Aug. 20, 2021, 3:03 p.m.

The Abolition of Man is another book of C.S. Lewis that I have read multiple times.  I really like the evocotive title.  I wonder sometimes if when Lewis (or other authors) write something, if they don't start with the main thesis and work backwards from there.  That sounds straightforward enough and surely many works of literature are written that way.  In this case, the essay "Men Without Chests" ends with a group of vivid analogies but the one that most grips me reads " They remove the organ and demand the function".  It seems like the kind of pithy conclusion that formed the basis for the meat of the essay.
