Reinventing the liberal arts

    Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review

    Abstract

    In a contemporary context, the liberal arts are under pressure from vocational studies, and the study of philosophy and literature is declining. In this paper, the author suggests that the liberal arts need to be reinvented for the twenty-first century and outlines some ways in which it might be possible to do this. In addition, the author discusses some forms of pedagogy which can be used to realise one of the changes suggested in Part Three.
