    a great little book; though i am not a catholic and therefore don’t agree with the emphasis he places on thomas aquinas.

    The subtitle sums up what he's trying to do. I'm not a Catholic; Derrick is, so we have some major points of disagreement, although mostly in the last couple chapters, which I see as less important than Derrick probably would. A terrific, conversational book on what education is and should be, and how the ideal college education should be constructed.
