Who Controls the Canon? A Classicist in Conversation with Cultural Conservatives.
Moretti, Frank A.
Teachers College Record, v95 n1 p113-26 Fall 1993
One contradiction in today's discourse on education is that defenders of the canon who invoke the tradition of classical literature fail to see that the history of that literature argues that Deweyan growth is achieved by challenging old assumptions. The paper lays the foundation for a broader concept of education. (SM)
