Olic Faith can be lived out in unabashed pursuit of the True the Good and the Beautiful Beauty in the Word is a uniue contribution to Beauty in PDFEPUB or bringing these bountiful aspects of the Real back to the center of learning where they rightfully belong If your concern is for the true meaning of education for your children here is the place to begin Those responsible for. As someone in the homeschooling trenches I love a book that can help guide my vision while also giving me specifics on how to accomplish that vision This book does that It gave me new insights into the Trivium and the importance of directing my children's hearts toward God Caldecott gives his own spin to Grammar Dialectic and Rhetoric in a beautifully written way The book incorporates a lot of wisdomHowever much of the practical advice he gives such as making sure children read and are read the books and stories that are the foundation of our culture obtain access to nature practice art etc is already incorporated into the days of most homeschoolers I know Although the advice is nothing new it's good to be reminded of the value of such activitiesAlso Caldecott is Catholic and is primarily addressing Catholic educators which I am not But as the author himself says We need not fear to recognize beauty in another person's beliefs I am bothered by his declaring the Bible to be subordinate to liturgy and his espousals of John Paul II's views on evolution

Beauty in the WordNew initiatives in Catholic schooling have a chance to recreate the inner spirit of education and not just its outer frame They will not easily find a programme inspirational than the one presented here Aidan NicholsStratford Caldecott offers a rare combination of intelligence and profound vision yet combines this with accessibility and luminous transparency Catherine Picksto. I was really looking for authority and clarity in Caldecott but I have to say that I am disappointed Yes Caldecott brilliantly points out Simone Weil’s insight that the final end of education is to prepare people to to give loving attention to God in prayer I could not agree He rightly points out that education needs the collaboration of two people as Newman said in The Idea of a University not individuals He also says Classical Education the traditional Christian method can be reduced into remembering thinking and communicating Does he mean to moderate the influence of books like Climbing Parnassus that would base education solely on Greek and Latin works with no modern works or of punitive systems I think so but he is not clear enough for the general public Does he mean to say that biology is unimportant when he praised the use of imagination in Jesuit memory palaces I doubt that I rather think he means it to be a organic process not just drill Yet he is not clear enough See what Auinas said about the connection between facts and prudence Also because he seems to spend most of his time speaking to the classical brickmortar schools he does not go in depth enough into the problems of parents choosing secular or Waldorf education After all few Catholic schools are directed by people trying to get kids to contact spirits even if the kids are using Waldorf techniues like drawing without lines and singing without tone Yet if as he admits homeschoolers are becoming a cultural force I wonder why he does not address himself to parents His caveats to unschooling are really not well connected and specific at all You can’t teach someone to draw without drawing something As I watch a myriad of my friends losing sight of the true focus of education demanding rigor or technology or freedom from things I keep hoping authoritative sources will appear Educational pundits are missing the boat by not educating the parents first
