Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Abolition of Man, C. S. Lewis's masterpiece in ethics and the philosophy of science, warns of the danger of combining modern moral skepticism with the technological pursuit of human desires. The end result is the final destruction of human nature. From Brave New World to Star Trek, from steampunk to starships, science fiction film has considered from nearly every conceivable angle the same nexus of morality, technology, and humanity of which C. S. Lewis wrote. As a result, science fiction film has unintentionally given us stunning depictions of Lewis's terrifying vision of the future. In Science Fiction Film and the Abolition of Man, scholars of religion, philosophy, literature, and film explore the connections between sci-fi film and the three parts of Lewis's book: how sci-fi portrays "Men without Chests" incapable of responding properly to moral good, how it teaches the Tao or "The Way," and how it portrays "The Abolition of Man."

In Science Fiction Film and the Abolition of Man, scholars of religion, philosophy, literature, and film explore the connections between sci-fi film and the three parts of Lewis's book: how sci-fi portrays ""Men without Chests"" incapable of responding properly to moral good, how it teaches the Tao or ""The Way,"" and how it portrays ""The Abolition of Man."" ""Though The Abolition of Man is one of Lewis's shortest books, it is also one of the most important and influential. This interesting collection of essays shows how the perceptive critiques and prescient warnings found in Abolition resound tellingly in many science fiction films and TV shows. A valuable and thought-provoking volume."" --Michael Ward, Fellow of Blackfriars Hall, University of Oxford ""Students of C. S. Lewis and fans of science fiction alike will find their understanding of today's and tomorrow's world enriched, and likely chastened, by this thought-provoking collection of essays."" --Charles T. Rubin, author of Eclipse of Man ""Here we have an engaging, accessible, and highly relevant collection of essays on how science fiction at its best portrays our possible subhuman future."" --Peter Lawler, Dana Professor of Political Science, Berry College ""Science fiction is often a kind of sociological exploration. Science Fiction and the Abolition of Man demonstrates this clearly. The diverse interpretations demonstrate why sociological explorations of sci-fi are always journeys worth taking."" --John Tenuto, Professor of Sociology, College of Lake Count ""Science fiction films have warned for decades: the purveyors of scientific technologies may promise a better and happier world, but in a culture bereft of orientation to goodness beyond ourselves, they can only provide different worlds--crafted at their whim, and often morally dangerous and profoundly unhappy. These delightful essays, by clarifying that warning through the lens of classic moral psychology, send us back to those great films with new eyes and, more importantly, refreshed hearts for goodness."" --Robert B.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This text investigates why C. S. Lewis brings humans into outer space in order to recover a Christian worldview during a time of war. Lewis’s science fiction trilogy was published throughout the WWII era, and his readers were all too familiar with advances in technological warfare and the biological experimentation of the Nazi agenda. To recover a Christian worldview during such a tumultuous time, the first two installments of the trilogy bring humans into outer space in order to reconnect with the Cosmic Chain of Being. Malacandra and Perelandra depict all beings coexisting in the Great Dance that Maleldil creates. In the last installment, Lewis’s N.I.C.E. reflects experimentation carried out in some concentration camps during WWII. Lewis’s return to Earth in the last book of the trilogy calls for readers to acknowledge our broken Chain of Being and recover our faith in God rather than attempt to become gods ourselves. Explore Lewis’s science fiction through J. R. R. Tolkien’s Recovery lens for a connection between Lewis’s Christian worldview, the potential for human self-abolition, and recovering the Cosmic Chain of Being for modern humans.
