The Content of the Curriculum: Two Views: The Value of the Canon.
Howe, Irving
Liberal Education, v77 n3 p8-9 May-Jun 1991
The past is the substance from which the present is formed, but college curricula based on this cultural heritage need not exclude the present. Major classical writers and social thinkers must be central to it but should be accompanied by critical engagement with living texts from powerful and active minds. (MSE)
