What Is Liberal Education in a Technological Era?
Billington, David P.
New Directions for Higher Education, n85 p37-49 Spr 1994
This article argues that, throughout history, progress has been intertwined with liberal education. Liberal education is seen as influencing technology and vice versa. These ideas are traced through historical eras including that of steamboats and textiles (1807-1855), connecting the continent (1830-1883), the rise of industry, and information and infrastructure (1946-1993).
