Abstract:

Education has become splintered and fragmented in our postmodern culture. The arts are divorced from the sciences; faith is antithetical to reason. Prominent Catholic thinker Stratford Caldecott calls for a rebirth or, rather, ressourcement of learning in Beauty for Truth's Sake. His aim: to restore meaning and unity to education. The author contends that relearning how to learn is a core skill in the fast-paced, mercurial twenty-first century. Caldecott draws inspiration from Pope Benedict XVI's The Spirit of the Liturgy, which emphasizes that the Logos is behind all of the order in the cosmos. He calls for a return to the classic liberal arts and advocates approaching the sciences and mathematics through a poetic imagination. Ultimately, the search for coherence and the pursuit of a Theory of Everything leads back to the Trinity. - Publisher.
