Humanities Education: Can We Teach Without Apologizing?
Anderson, Douglas
Journal of General Education, v51 n2 p127-143 2002
Examines attempts to save humanities education by making it instrumental to other ends. Argues that, rather than finding ways to appease an unsympathetic audience, humanities programs must act without apology and accentuate the role the humanities plays in humanizing and liberating students through self-criticism and self-revision. (Contains 16 references.) (NB)
