Orators and Philosophers: A History of the Idea of Liberal Education
In this prize-winning book, Bruce Kimball provides a cogent study of the historical evolution of the idea of liberal education. Clearly and forcefully argued, the book portrays this evolution as a struggle between two contending points of view - one oratorical and the other philosophical - that have interacted, often controversially, from antiquity to the present.
