Andrew Kern: Teaching and The Abolition of Man

January 6, 2014

Andrew Kern, founder and president of the CIRCE Institute, joins the podcast to discuss classical  education and its continued growth, how to teach teachers classically, and one of his favorite  books for teachers, C.S. Lewis’s The Abolition of Man. He explains some of the book’s major  points, which include how society is tending towards erasing humanity by attempting to control  it and how many modern schools attempt not to instruct children in truth and virtue but condition them according to the desires of central planners. The CIRCE Institute teaches people how to conduct classical education. We also mention Kern’s book, Classical Education: The Movement Sweeping America.
