Orators and Philosophers: A History of the Idea of Liberal Education

0.0  ·  Rating Details ·  0 Ratings  ·  0 Reviews

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.
