Aquinas's Commentary On The Metaphysics

#156- Dewey’s “Challenge to Liberal Thought” Part 2

This week, Scott and Karl finish their discussion of John Dewey’s essay, “Challenge to Liberal Thought.”

Written in his later life, Dewey expands on his criticisms of the Great Books of Western Civilization enterprise and a liberal arts education.

The duo agrees— this is shoddy work to say the least. At the end of their conversation, Scott says, “This is just not very good. I wonder, how did these people get the traction that they got? Why do our intellectual overlords keep telling us we need to read Dewey?”

Tune in to hear the rest of Scott and Karl’s response to Dewey’s essay.  Brought to you by
