Classical education is seeing a revival in the United States and across the globe, particularly among Catholics. The classical approach, based on the ancient Socratic method, is thriving, and classical Catholic schools are multiplying and expanding. However, classical education has its sceptics. Some parents and instructors are concerned that it is ineffective, out of date, or, worse, judgmental.
Andrew Youngblood, an educator with decades of experience as a student and instructor in classical learning, exposes readers to this intriguing education option and its intellectual and spiritual rewards in Know Thyself. Youngblood describes traditional Catholic education, investigates its integrated and narrative approach to learning, and demonstrates its transformational power and beauty.
Know Thyself offers a positive argument for an education journey that teaches students to view themselves through God's eyes—and to fully know themselves and who they are meant to be—through small vignettes, personal tales from students and professors, and classroom examples.
