THE LIBERAL ARTS--PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE.
RICE, JAMES G.
THE STERILITY OF THE LIBERAL ARTS IN MOST COLLEGES TODAY IS BECOMING MORE EVIDENT. STUDENTS ARE TURNING TO "POT," LSD, OR IMMERSIONS IN ANOTHER CULTURE IN THEIR QUESTS TO EXPAND THEIR CONSCIOUSNESS. THE STUDENT'S NEED FOR A HEIGHTENED AWARENESS AND LARGER FRAME OF REFERENCE CAN BE FULFILLED BY A STUDY OF THE LIBERAL ARTS ONLY IF THESE STUDIES ARE LESS DOGMATICALLY CONCEIVED AND MORE IMAGINATIVELY AND CREATIVELY PRESENTED. TO IMPROVE THE LIBERAL ARTS CURRICULUM WE MUST RE-EDUCATE TEACHERS, MAKE THE CURRICULUM MORE FLEXIBLE AND RELEVANT, AND CHANGE THE COURSES TO EMPHASIZE METHODS OF INQUIRY, THE NON-VERBAL, AND THE CONTEMPORARY. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN THE "CASC NEWSLETTER," VOLUME 11, NUMBER 10, JULY 1967, PAGES 3-5, 13. (BN)
