Getting the classics back in the classroom

Winston Brady at North State Journal.

"When introducing the iPad 2, Steve Jobs said, 'Technology alone is not enough,' because the best technology needs the liberal arts to stoke its creative fires. Jobs even attributed his edge in the tech world to studying calligraphy, not courses in engineering.Classical education already unites the arts and sciences. In history, students study the Scientific Revolution and its prominent figures; in logic, they learn the rules these thinkers applied in studying the natural world; and in science they conduct experiments with Galileo’s boldness and curiosity."
Here is a video of Mr. Jobs on technology and the liberal arts.
