Product Description

In The Abolition of Man, CS. Lewis asks if we have been taught to discount the veracity and deeper meaning of our emotional resonance with the world around us. He examines the curriculum of the English "prep school" and begins to wonder if this subliminal teaching has indeed produced a generation who discount such a nature. "St. Augustine," he explains, "defines virtue as ordo amoris, the ordinate condition of the affections in which every object is accorded that kind of degree of love which is appropriate to it. Aristotle says that the aim of education is to make the pupil like and dislike what he ought, When the age for reflective thought comes, the pupil who has been thus trianed in "ordinate affections" or "just sentiment" will easily find the first principle in Ethics; but to the corrupt man they will never be visible at all and he can make no progress in that science." Yet the modern educational system around him it seems, was bent on producing "men without chests" and calling them intellectuals. It is this unconscious transformation that Lewis uncovers and questions in this short and penetrating work.
In The Great Divorce, C.S. Lews' classic vision of the Afterworld, the narrator boards a bus on a drizzly English afternoon and embarks on an incredible voyage through Heaven and Hell. He meets a host of supernatural beings far removed frm his expectations, and comes to some significant realizations about the nature of good and evil. Unabridged. Read by Robert Whitfield. 4 CDs. 5 hours.
