The author will be happy to know that I ripped this book apart using the analytical thinking skills and logic taken from my Humanities education.
She has good points- it's just that they could have been summed up in a few pages. Yes, we need to Humanities in order to educate thinking democratic citizens. Yes, a profit-based or vocation-centered education will not necessarily lead to democratic stability and a fulfilling personal existence. But her points were weakened by a lack of concrete numbers and examples. I felt like I was reading my own Master's Thesis: some interesting points, but a bit of a stretch.
