Overview Concerned with the trendy, technocratic, and at times sophistical character of contemporary education at all levels, both public and private, the authors of this collection seek to reinvigorate a Thomistic approach to education appropriate to the problems of our day. With its main inspiration taken from the work of Jacques Maritain, especially his 1943 volume, Education at the Crossroads, the collection presents a trenchant critique of the privacies of contemporary education, with its emphasis upon the conventional and useful. At the same time, these essays present the outlines of the proper alternative, an education which helps the student draw out from himself his desire for truths which transcend the contingencies of culture and utility.
