Christopher Dawson and the Crisis of Western Education -- Bradley J. Birzer

The speaker argues that renewed attention to the work of Christopher Dawson, with his appreciation of the broad sweep of the great tradition of Western thought stretching back into the classical age, can help us today: 'If we are to challenge the ideologues of the world, if we are to challenge the bureaucrats in education and elsewhere, and if we are to have any degree of success, we must recognise a new "Republic of Letters", . . . that takes on the ideological hostility, and creates instead a wholeness and awareness of the complexity of man.'
