This edited volume examines liberal arts and sciences education by focusing on the unique way in which core texts – i.e. classic texts from philosophical, historical, literary or cultural traditions involving “the best that has been written” – meet the challenges of modern higher education in general and in Europe in particular. It covers topics such as the nature and aims of liberal arts and sciences education, how specific core texts promote the goals of liberal arts and sciences education, including the teaching methods, curricular reflections, and personal experiences of teaching core texts.
“a splendid achievement for the cause of interdisciplinarity.”
