One Response to Catholic Social Teaching: Discernment

  1. I have had the good fortune to read the article from Mr. Adkins on the revitalization of a truly classical education. I recall a mantra of secularist promoters using children to say something to the effect of “we want to learn how to think, not what to think.” My response would be, “What’s the difference?” Once secular education instituted the rule that all ideas had equal merit, classical education was tossed out of the window. As we know, a thing cannot be and not be at the same time and in the same aspect. This and other traditional rules of logic lead students to objective truth–in Mr. Adkin’s words, the “transcendent”. Kudos to Mr. Adkins. Education, truly approached, is formation in reality. All else is, as Frank Sheed noted, insanity.

We want your opinion, too!
