It’s What’s Inside that Can Change The Game.
Aristotle is adjudged by common consent as the most educated man who ever lived. By analyzing, defining, and classifying the various branches of knowledge, he laid the foundations for modern science and philosophy.
It was, however, St John Cardinal Newman, another great thinker of our time, who best defined what a liberal arts education should be in the university.
He said, “An academical system without the personal influence of teachers upon pupils, is an arctic system; it will create an ice-bound, petrified, cast-iron University, and nothing else’ (Historical Sketches iii. p.74). It was always the same message: education is never merely a matter of learning; it involves a care for the person as well.”
Cardinal Newman developed a style of preaching which has become renowned for its pastoral quality.
He had no interest in moving their minds without touching their hearts. The liberal arts education is an education of the intellect without forgetting the “real assent” or refinement of the human spirit.
