Become soulful through a liberal arts education

On Monday 6 April 2009, at 7:00 p.m. in the Whittemore Theater at Marlboro College in Marlboro, Vermont, Thomas Moore talks about "A Liberating Education: Learning How to Be a Person with Soul":

"Today we are all caught unconsciously in the myth of our times: modernism. We believe in fact, information, training, data, research, and numbers. Something is wrong with an education constrained by this mythology. It has no soul," says Moore. "But there is an alternative, a new way of imagining how and what to learn. In this new, ancient form of learning, the arts and ideas come back and along with them a sense of belonging to community. We become cultured persons rather than just informed and skilled workers."

This free event is open to the public.
