For 2500 years classical education equipped people for freedom and self-governance. The 20th century inverted schooling and put analytical learning (the servant) above the humane learning (the master) of the classical tradition. This seminar explains the difference between a normative classical vision of education and a soul-starving analytical approach, showing the false turn and the path back to a classical approach. Includes a discussion of assessment of learning and governance.
