           In The Abolition of Man, now a minor classic, C.S. Lewis explores the importance of our emotions in living well, and the moral realism required to order out passions and emotions in reasonable ways. He also suggestscorrectly or incorrectly?–that our current forms of education tend to disorder the passions, turning us into “men without chests.” If it’s not enough to simply think rightly, how do we go about feeling rightly?
