Product Description

Education has become splintered and fragmented in our postmodern culture. The arts are divorced from sciences; faith is antithetical to reason. Prominent Catholic thinker Stratford Caldecott calls for a rebirth or, rather, ressourcement of learning in Beauty for Truth's Sake. His aim: to restore meaning and unity to education. The author contends that relearning how to learn is a core skill in the fast-paced, mercurial twenty-first century. Caldecott draws inspiration from Pope Benedict XVI's The Spirit of the Liturgy, which emphasizes that the Logos is behind all of the order in the cosmos. He calls for a return to the classic liberal arts and advocates approaching the sciences and mathematics through a poetic imagination. Ultimately, the search for coherence and the pursuit of a Theory of Everything leads back to the Trinity.

Beauty for Truth's Sake is appropriate for college professors and university administrators, serving as an excellent resource for faculty workshops and colloquiums. It will also find a home in courses on worldviews and the integration of faith and learning. Parents, homeschoolers, and anyone dedicated to continuing education and lifelong learning will benefit from understanding that all truth is God's truth.

Publisher's Description

Much of the confusion and meaninglessness of the twenty-first century stems from the fragmentation of knowledge. Our postmodern times cry out for a return to wholeness. Enter Stratford Caldecott, who calls for renewal in education in Beauty for Truth's Sake. By reclaiming the classic liberal arts and viewing disciplines such as science and mathematics through a poetic lens, the author explains that unity is present within diversity. Ultimately, God is behind all truth.

This book will benefit parents, homeschoolers, lifelong learners, and readers interested in the history of ideas. It is appropriate for Christian college and university students and will play an especially important role in curriculum development.
