Join us for our Forum presentation on education and the modern world by Dr. Steve Turley of Tall Oaks Classical School and Eastern University.
When: Friday, February 8, 7:00 P.M. — 8:30 P.M.
Open to the public.
Recovering Truth, Goodness, and Beauty in Our Time
Is there such a thing as objective truth, goodness, and beauty? How do these ideas shape our view of the world and how does our view of the world affect our hearts, minds, and souls? Join Dr. Turley as he draws from writers, ranging from Plato to C.S. Lewis, and guides us on a journey, contrasting the approaches of both classical and contemporary education, particularly with regard to aesthetics. As Lewis explains, the cultivation of virtue was central to classical education, while modern education stifles such moral formation by teaching a scientifically-inspired mechanistic vision of the world. Through classical education, our affections can be trained to love what’s truly lovely — leading to the experience of greater human flourishing.
