Liberal Education and Its Enemies.
Partington, Geoffrey
Canadian Journal of Education, v19 n4 p395-410 Fall 1984
References to Plato, Aristotle, Hegel, and Marx illustrate essential characteristics of liberal education; central concern with the educationally valuable; development of mind as a whole; and acceptance of hierarchy within knowledge. Criticizes contemporary groups (primitivists, multiculturalists, reductionists, indoctrinators, vocationalists, social relevance advocates) who reject these characteristics or restrict possible extension.
