Mortimer Adler on the Constitution
Posted by madcap on February 16, 2008
Adler addresses how we no longer teach what it means to be a citizen. I recently posted an article titled, “The Death of Liberal Education”where I pose the same argument. Books such as Democracy In America, by Alexis De Tocqueville, and documents such as the Federalist Papers are no longer read and discussed. We are slipping deeper into vulgarity each day. People are no longer taught how to think; therefore they fall prey to ideas by a process of intellectual drift rather than critical thinking.
