“We can’t teach the humanities unless the students have been humanized.”
In this episode, Dr. Jared Staudt discusses the text, Newman’s Idea of A University, and begs the question, ”What does it mean to explore reality?” He challenges educators and teachers to not become complacent, classical educators, but to seek the beautiful alongside their students and provide them with an education that grounds them in both tradition and reality.
Dr. Jared Staudt is teaching a course in the Magnus Fellowship this summer on Newman’s Idea of a University, the book that is the fruit of Newman’s difficult venture as an Englishman creating a University in Ireland. Learn more, join the Fellowship, and register for the free 8 week course.
