Beginning with a clear account of the historical setting for The Abolition of Man and its place within C.S. Lewis' corpus of writing, Contemporary Perspectives on C. S. Lewis' The Abolition of Man: History, Philosophy, Education and Science assesses and appraises Lewis' seminal lectures, providing a thorough analysis of the themes and subjects that are raised. Chapters focus on the major areas of thought including: philosophy, natural law, education, literature, politics, theology, science, biotechnology and the connection between the Ransom Trilogy. Drawing on Lewis' central ideas, they tackle questions such as, is The Abolition of Man hostile to scientific inquiry? Does Lewis provide an adequate rational defense of natural moral law? Do the lectures address the philosophical questions of the 21st century as Lewis sought to provide answers to philosophical questions of the 20th century? Dealing with themes across multiple areas of human inquiry, the authors bring expertise from their respective fields to bear on the core issues raised in Lewis' lectures. The result is an interdisciplinary approach that offers the first comprehensive scholarly treatment of The Abolition of Man, one of the most debated of Lewis' works.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A welcome addition to the scholarly literature on Lewis's influential defence of objective value. The perspectives are penetrating, illuminating, weighty without being ponderous. A collection that immediately establishes itself as the `go to' book for anyone wanting to understand Lewis the philosopher at his most succinct, challenging, and telling. -- Michael Ward, Fellow of Blackfriars Hall, University of Oxford, UK, co-editor of The Cambridge Companion to C.S. Lewis
An impressive collection: required reading for anyone interested in exploring the background, central arguments, and enduring lessons of C. S. Lewis's The Abolition of Man. -- Gregory Bassham, Professor of Philosophy, King's College, USA
