    Um ótimo guia para entender, em contexto, a crítica de C. S. Lewis à educação moderna em A abolição do homem.

    Like his book Ever After, this one is extremely brief, and I wished for a more developed and thorough comparison between classical and modern education. However, also like Ever After, it was very timely and very good.

    C.S. Lewis's classic critique of education, "The Abolition of Man" (1943), is here summarized and shown to be as relevant today as it was over 70 years ago (if not more so). Describing and expanding upon Lewis's analysis of the way knowledge of the true, good, and beautiful had become an increasingly subjective and individualistic exercise, Turley shows simply and starkly what a dramatic difference lies between "classical" and "modern" education.

Lewis's classic critique of education, "The Abolition of Man" (1943), is here summarized and shown to be as relevant today as it was over 70 years ago (if not more so). Describing and expanding upon Lewis's analysis of the way knowledge of the true, good, and beautiful had become an increasingly subjective and individualistic exercise, Turley shows simply and starkly what a dramatic difference lies between "classical" and "modern" education. The difference is based not merely in curricula or methodologies; rather, both of these are driven by completely divergent understandings of the universe that could not be more incompatible. I'd recommend this brief read for anyone who is interested in an overview of the main themes of "The Abolition of Man" or who is curious about what classical education is all about.

    A compelling essay, not a book One might believe this "tome" is a discussion/review of C.S. Lewis's thought. In truth, it is an essay that can be read in 20 minutes and only quotes a few passages from Lewis. As for the content of the essay, it is profound and far-reaching in its consequence.

Lewis's thought. In truth, it is an essay that can be read in 20 minutes and only quotes a few passages from Lewis. As for the content of the essay, it is profound and far-reaching in its consequence. It speaks to the contradiction in society that values seeking self-interest of the individual (or perhaps of an ethnic, racial, or other identity group that wishes to conform society to serve the welfare of the group) yet is puzzled that politicians, businessmen, or identity groups lie, cheat, steal, with no regard for the common good. Turley points to the current educational system that promotes modernity, an objectifying scientific view of the world that seeks to conquer nature in order to feed human desires rather than the earlier classical education that sought to form and raise men to grow in virtue to thereby participate in the Good which itself is part of a sacred, divinely ordered universe. I commend Turley for tackling the subject, but the theme is far to great for some 40 kindle pages. Lewis wrote many entire books on the topic. The greatest lack in the essay is that Turley has no room to show why mankind over the centuries felt compelled, regretfully, to cease perceiving the world as divinely ordered. And then, how to return to the perception (And to show why such a renewed perception must necessarily be a Christian one). I'd rather rate the essay 3.5 stars on account of the importance of the topic. But the essay needs to be a book, a rather long one.

    Short and sweet. Dr Turley makes a concise and convincing argument for Classical Education over and against modern education. He covers the holistic and axiomatic differences in a quick breeze through history, aided mainly by CS Lewis and his classic, The Abolition of Man. Dr Turley offers easy-to-understand philosophical reasons why for Classical superiority and encouraging data for Classical schools from The USA. Thankfully they have seen a renaissance in Classical Education there and I hope we Short and sweet.

Laughing at honor(or a standard, in my view), and being suprised by traitors. The bit on Frodo and Sam was well read and to the point! But, the more interesting one was the bit on sublime vs pretty.

    Quick and good read I read this book in less than an hour. It deals with C.S. Lewis' Abolition of Man and, coincidently (I did not know that was so), I had finished trade that book the day before. So, it was all fresh in my mind and Mr. Turkey's book helped me further digest Lewis' dense work. I recommend it as a way to get enthusiastic about Classical Education. Go for it!

    Gives a succint overview of the two systems of education, the Modern vs. Classical. It traces the consequential and underlying Modernist attitudes that have sprouted up in the stead of the Good, the True, and the Beautiful, which have been the fundamental pillars of classical thought from antiquity.

    Good value for the price Very informative and thought provoking. There were a few terms that could have been defined but overall well worth reading and more importantly thinking about.

    Appreciating Classical Education Brief but much needed reminder of the root of the problem in the modern educational system. Dr. Turley just made me want to read The Absolution of Man again. Note I said WANT to not Have to.

    Um bom resumo do pensamento de Lewis a respeito da educação. Uma introdução ao assunto.

    In this very brief book, the comparisons between classical and modern education was very thought provoking. I had wished for a more thorough examination, more explanations or just plain more, but what little was there was, of course, very well put together.

    Uma ótimo folheto sobre C. S. Lewis e a educação clássica. Servindo também de apresentação a educação clássica e educação moderna. Mostrando claramente que a clássica é melhor e o porque o é.
