Liberal Education in a Knowledge Society

Front Cover
Barry Smith, Carl Bereiter
Open Court Publishing, 2002 - Education - 291 pages
Liberal education was once governed by a canon, a recognized body of knowledge considered essential for transmission from one generation to the next. These essays examine the plight of modern educational theory in a world trying to cope with information overload without the guidance of a canon. Contributors include Carl Bereiter, Gordon Wells, and James Miller.
