“As a society, we are working hard to make sure our educational train is running efficiently, without seriously asking where that train ought to be going.”
In this lecture, Dr. David Diener of Hillsdale Academy explores the centrality of virtue to a good education, drawing on thinkers throughout the centuries, from Plato and Aristotle to Cicero to John Harvard and John Locke and W. E. B. Du Bois.
David Diener, Ph.D., is Headmaster of Hillsdale Academy and Lecturing Professor of Education at Hillsdale College.
