Old Things and NewOld Things and New: A Strategy for Education

by Frederick E. Crowe
173 pages | available in paperback

In this volume Frederick Crowe begins from the Lonergan’s insights about a development “from above downward” complementing development “from below upward,” and applies it to a number of issues and topics in education. After outlining the two vector forces of education, which he names “heritage” and “achievement,” Crowe discusses each in detail, offers a proposal for their integration, and considers post-secondary education, the Christian dimension, and the Ignatian Exercises.
