Love of Learning | A New Book Coming in 2021

Love of Learning: Seven Dialogues on the Liberal Arts

Regardless of your own educational background, this book will show you how to be both a learner and an educator in any circumstance. It will challenge you to think about what is needed to help us in this life-long quest for liberal learning, which is the only kind of education for people whose lives are characterized by a love of freedom and deep sense of purpose.
