The Liberal Arts and General Education: A Perspective.
Ciampa, Bartholomew J.
This paper reviews recent literature pertaining to the liberal arts and general education curricula in higher education institutions today. The author suggests the establishment of a new liberal art that uses the principle of indifference to combine recognition of the familiar with the discovery of the new. However, instead of the formation of a single new liberal art, 4 new liberal arts are in evidence of formation today. These mark points at which existing liberal arts have become impertinent to problem, and at which they have uncovered facets of those problems to which such new liberal arts must be adapted. These new arts are the structure of disciplines as a structure of facts, the methods of inquiry and proof, and systems of knowledge and action. (Author/HS)
