The Politicization of Liberal Education.
Agresto, John
Perspectives on Political Science, v19 n3 p153-55 Sum 1990
Probes the intrinsically political nature of education. Distinguishes between liberation through knowledge and indoctrination. Maintains that the task of liberal educators is to open students' minds, not possess them. Argues that the possibility for liberal education relies on the discovery of transtemporal, transhistorical, transcultural truth, and the ascendancy of knowledge over opinion. (CH)
