Virtue: Spring 2020

Virtue Magazine — Mathematics

Each issue of Virtue will have articles and interviews from the nation’s leading intellectuals; profiles of outstanding teachers, alumni, and students; succinct descriptions of classical education—what, how, and why we teach the liberal arts; essays by leading academic scholars, relating their work to classical education; and an assortment of topics to keep us all thinking afresh, as we continue to pursue the classical ideals of truth, goodness, and beauty.
