A Defence of Classical Education $12.60

Published in Great Britain during World War I, A Defence of Classical Education saw restless ferment against the centuries-long dominance of Latin and Greek in education. If we’re to teach languages at all, the thinking went, let them be modern languages, not the “dead” ones that not a soul in the world currently spoke.
Arguing the case for the opposition came R. W. Livingstone. Over a century after its publication, Livingstone’s words read more freshly than most books churned out today. In the new age dawning of “Artificial Intelligence,” here is a case for enhancing Real Intelligence within human souls. Here is a case for making ourselves responsible for knowing the past: We become better, wiser people.
