The Future of Liberal Education by Timothy W. Burns

Liberal Education, once the whole of American Higher Education, has been displaced by technical training and career-oriented majors. But it has also suffered from the decline in genuine liberal learning found in humanities disciplines, owing to specialization, politicization, and the adoption of new literary and psychological theories. The social sciences, too, have arguably abandoned the kind of relentless and sometimes disturbing questioning that used to constitute the core of education. In this compelling volume, thirteen college educators describe in sparkling prose what liberal education is, its place in a liberal democracy, the very serious challenges it faces in the 21st century-even from some of its alleged friends-and why it is important to sustain and expand liberal education's place in American colleges and universities. Proponents and critics of liberal education alike will benefit from these insightful essays.

This book was originally published as a special issue of Perspectives on Political Science.
