Review: How to Think: The Liberal Arts and Their Enduring Value

How to Think: The Liberal Arts and Their Enduring Value How to Think: The Liberal Arts and Their Enduring Value by Michael D.C. Drout
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I willingly admit that I am a total fanboy of Michael C. Drout's work. He is the author of several lecture series from Recorded Book's Modern Scholar line. His lively voice, amusing asides, and excitement over nerdy things add a level of interest to the lectures that other Modern Scholar lecturers seem to miss. This lecture series is no different as he delves into the history, the values, the importance, and the problems with the Liberal Arts as a major centerpiece of modern education. It's worth a listen for everyone who works in the liberal arts and more so for those who wish to devalue (and ultimately, defund) the liberal arts as it provides a good strong explanation as to their cultural importance.
