Mapping the World: Some Thoughts on Teaching the Humanities in Prison.
Minahan, John
Journal of Correctional Education, v41 n1 p14-19 Mar 1990
Argues that it is false to assume that morality can be taught and that increased moral sophistication will reduce recidivism in a causal sense. Suggests that the humanities are probably helpful in dealing with recidivism because they improve the way inmates "map" the world and their place in it. (Author/JOW)
