The Abolition of Man is a short philosophical work about moral education, its context is British education in the 1940s. The moral code is objective, not the invention or property of any one person or movement or even civilization.
The objective of this book is to lift the fog of the various misunderstandings of college: credits, courses, assignments, studying, etc. It is somewhat slanted toward US students; however, many of the things can be applied to different colleges.
