Truth, Beauty, and Goodness Reframed: Educating for the Virtues in the Age of Truthiness and Twitter

Many of us take for granted that we know what is true, beautiful, and good. This book discusses the challenges faced by traditional education in light of two forces: the post modern critique from the humanities and the disruptive potentials of the new digital media. Gardner describes how the core ideas of truth, beauty, and goodness can survive and even be strengthened in education across the life span. (read more…)
