Description

"Clair offers a perceptive and, as far as I know, new defense of a Christian great books education that is an excellent contribution to our reflection on contemporary liberal education." - Augustinian Studies

"On Education is a compelling read. It brings fresh air to Augustine's remarkable life. In just 120 pages, with Augustine as his guide, Clair diagnoses the disarray that afflicts the modern university, making a case for liberal education grounded in moral and spiritual purposes." - The Cresset

"As a foray toward the calling of reading deeply as a facet of an intellectual asceticism and a serious option for those concerned about higher education, I commend Clair's book." - Reading Religion

"This book should be compulsory reading for members of the board at Christian universities. The book is also a challenging invitation to all Augustinian scholars to search across a spectrum of fields for how the life and work of Augustine could be fruitful for contemporary society." - Augustiniana

"Some books are long, but relative to their length you don't benefit much. Some books are short, but relative to their length you benefit greatly. Joseph Clair's new book, On Education, Formation, Citizenship and the Lost Purpose of Learning fits in the latter category. In 120 pages Clair gives a crisp and thoughtful account of how higher education has lost its moral rudder." - David Moore, twocities.org
