Reinventing the Liberal Arts: And Unbundling Higher Education

Availability: Ready to download

Hardly a week passes without some luminary decrying the exorbitant cost of higher education and the sorry state of the liberal arts. But none of them explain, in detail, how to obtain a liberal arts education better than that offered by colleges and universities–in less than a year and at a fraction of the cost.

    The smarts of a simple mind. So if you started stealing from friends and relatives to feed a cocaine habit Newport won't help you enjoy life without your addiction, but he knows where you can get it for much cheaper.

    Most of my undergrad and graduate degrees involved technical education rather than classical, and I felt that I'd missed out on a lot. This book satisfies my need very nicely. It is a program covering typical liberal arts courses, and it has reading lists and requires papers on those readings, that roughly correspond to three semesters of undergraduate school. I'm very happy w/ this book, and I highly recommend it to anyone who may have not had as much liberal arts exposure as they'd like.

    This is a curriculum design for someone interested in a self or group taught liberal arts education. So far, so good, and many of the resources are excellent and available free on-line. However, I already have a liberal arts degree, so am definitely not the right audience for it.
