A Classical Education

June 8, 2010 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Two interesting articles in The New York Times plugging an education focused on Classics and the Humanities.  Stanley Fish writes of his own classical education in high school and reviews three new books on the subject.  David Brooks puts in a plug for broad training in the Humanities as a road to success, even during an economic downturn.  (Note the special plug for Herodotus and Thucydides — I know that all of my Greek History students would agree :-))
