  • In Defense of a Liberal Education

    CNN host and best-selling author Fareed Zakaria argues for a renewed commitment to the world’s most valuable educational tradition.The liberal arts are under attack.

  • Great Insights of the Scientific Mind: The Place of Science in Liberal Education

    Bertrand Russell was a man of many parts: mathematician, philosopher, educator, popular writer, and political activist. It is surprising, and not a tad ironic (given his legal battles with higher education), that he eventually won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1950. He was a prolific writer, but his most concentrated work was done in his earlier years on mathematics in collaboration with Alfred North Whitehead. They produced a three-volume work entitled Principia Mathematica in 1910, 1912, and 1913 respectively. It was "an attempt to descri... [Read More]

  • Curriculum and the Culture Wars: Debating the Bible's Place in Public Schools (Washington College Studies in Religion, Politics, and Culture)

    Curriculum and the Culture Wars offers a fresh perspective on perennial debates about the role of religion in public schools, focusing on the intersection of religion and curriculum. This debate has been renewed in part due to the growth of elective Bible courses in public schools in many parts of the country. The first half of the book presents new scholarship on the use of the Bible in schools, including a historical analysis of what the Founders had to say about the use of the Bible in public education, a more current assessment of the polit...

  • The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure

    Something is going wrong on many college campuses in the last few years. Rates of anxiety, depression, and suicide are rising. Speakers are shouted down. Students and professors say they are walking on eggshells and afraid to speak honestly. How did this happen?   First Amendment expert Greg Lukianoff and social psychologist Jonathan Haidt show how the new problems on campus have their origins in three terrible ideas that have become increasingly woven into American childhood and education: what doesn’t kill you makes you weaker; always trus...

  • The New Education: How to Revolutionize the University to Prepare Students for a World In Flux

    A leading educational thinker argues that the American university is stuck in the past--and shows how we can revolutionize it for our era of constant change Our current system of higher education dates to the period from 1865 to 1925. It was in those decades that the nation's new universities created grades and departments, majors and minors, all in an attempt to prepare young people for a world transformed by the telegraph and the Model T. As Cathy N. Davidson argues in The New Education, this approach to education is wholly unsuited to the e... [Read More]
