Mr. Colin Pears, the director of CUA’s Undergraduate Advising Center and of CUA’s Center for Academic Success, does an excellent job of drawing lessons from yesterday’s two contrasting views of the written word in order to articulate a vision of learning which transforms people for the better.
What do you think makes the difference between something that purports to be education but which remains empty and a real education that transforms people for the better?
(By the way, in the video Mr. Pears also discusses Saul Bellow’s novel Herzog. Here’s a link to its page on Amazon. Although I have not read Herzog yet myself, I enjoyed reading another novel by Bellow, Henderson the Rain King, finding it both deep and funny.)
