In Pursuit of Relevance.
Muller, Herbert J.
This book discusses education (and its relevance) in the broadest sense, as not merely the formal training of students, but a process that all thoughtful people are engaged in throughout their lives. Searching questions are asked about basic attitudes. The main concern here is the quest for new values and life-styles and more satisfying modes of self-realization and self-expression. Nine chapters are included: The Relevance of the Humanities, The Uses and Abuses of History, A Hard Look at Ethics, A New Look at Freedom, The Uses of Science, The Uses of Tragedy, Democracy in America: Some Reconsiderations, The Portents of the Counter Culture, and An Old Liberal to the Youth. An index is included. (Author/CK)
