Dr. Martin does it again
by Joanna K. M. Bratten
I would like to commend Dr. Martin for his brilliant article on the true aim(s) of education and the importance of literature in the formation of the intellectual person. I can add nothing to what he has said as he, in his inimitable fashion, has thoroughly uncovered the length, breadth and depth of the problem, yea, even at Franciscan University. If only more people in higher education, educators and students alike, would hold to what he’s written…
Anyway, I’m glad the editors continue to plug away and just hope that the students back on the other side of the Atlantic grab up an opportunity to become involved in the academic and intellectual wealth of discussion that the Concourse can offer.
