The Greeks and the Education of Humanity.
Bergen, Timothy J., Jr.
Journal of General Education, v43 n1 p32-43 1994
Traces the roots of the concepts of the humanities and liberal arts education to the ancient Greeks, describing how their customs, language, philosophy, and literature have contributed to current concepts of education. Suggests that the Greek idea of education stressed the arts and mathematics but was opposed to all professionalism. (MAB)
