A Spinozist Synthesis of the Liberal Arts
Fidler, Geoffrey
Academic Questions, v16 n1 p81-86 Dec 2002
Three faculty members of Concordia University in Montreal, who played integral roles in the formation of a highly successful core curriculum as part of their institution, discuss the logistics, the politics, and the philosophy behind the founding and growth of their Liberal Arts College. For Geoffrey Fidler, their program echoes Spinoza's synthesis of nature and reason, which elevates the truth as a goal that simultaneously constrains and liberates, controls and transcends, discovers and invents. (Contains 12 notes.)
