Pressestimmen

What does it mean to be an educated person in the 21st century? Is the idea of liberal education relevant in today's world? For anyone who takes these questions to heart, The Educated Person is a book to read once, twice, and then again. Mulcahy's survey of the educational thought of the 19th and 20th centuries is breathtaking, his close readings of three historical theories of liberal education that have never before been juxtaposed are unparalleled, and the new paradigm of liberal education he proposes will be a focus of scholarly attention for years to come. -- Jane Roland Martin, Professor of Philosophy Emerita, University of Massachusetts, Boston This book is an insightful new analysis of the issues surrounding the definition of what a liberal education could and should be...It is well researched and easy to follow...Mulchay is very well qualified to write on this topic...The book would be of interest to higher education faculty and graduate students...Recommended. CHOICE, January 2009 Daniel Mulcahy outlines a new and radical approach for Liberal Education in which he attempts to revolutionize the understanding of the usefulness of liberal education by employing pragmatism, particularly surrounding the world of work and everyday life.He has created a lucid argument that will no doubt ignite the perennialist school of thought, confound the chattering class, and quite possibly find itself smack in the middle of the new paradigm that he suggests. Mulcahy's work is not one that callson division or consternation, but rather a higher value with an intense commitment to vocation of education. In an Age of Distraction, it is a serious work that asks for and demands serious attention. The work of others in the field of liberal education may differ with Mulcahy in the years to come, but they cannot go without answering his call.. -- Perry Lewis, 2009 Studies in Philosophy and Education Clearly written and based on close and rigorous argument, The Educated Person is a work of extraordinary erudition and admirable sensitivity to the real world of teaching and learning. Informed by a vision of personal and communal well-being and also by immense wisdom and common sense, Mulcahy's book is set to become a standard text in the philosophy of education. I have no doubt but that it will be widely referred to for many years to come. -- Kevin Williams, Ph.D., Mater Dei Institute, Dublin City University; former president, Educational Studies Association of Ireland Daniel Mulcahy outlines a new and radical approach for Liberal Education in which he attempts to revolutionize the understanding of the usefulness of liberal education by employing pragmatism, particularly surrounding the world of work and everyday life.
