Book Haul: The Seven Liberal Arts, Trivium & Quadrivium Part1
Because nobody can predict which technical or job skills will stay in-demand in a future that will be dominated by robots and artificial intelligence. These uniquely human qualities are what make us effective leaders and good communicators: creativity, empathy, social intelligence, curiosity, storytelling and adaptability. However, if you really dedicate yourself to studying the Classical Liberal Arts it can be one of the most challenging and helpful University degrees.

The Global Case Studies
September pages. The liberal arts major is often lampooned: lacking in "skills," unqualified for a professional career, underemployed. But studying for the joy of learning turns out to be surprisingly practical. Unlike career-focused education, liberal education prepares graduates for anything and everything—and nervous "fuzzy major" students, their even more nervous parents, college career center professionals, and prospective employers would do well to embrace liberal arts majors. Just look to Silicon Valley, of all places, to see that liberal arts majors can succeed not in spite of, but because of, their education. A Practical Education investigates the real-world experiences of graduates with humanities majors, the majors that would seem the least employable in Silicon Valley's engineering-centric workplaces. Drawing on the experiences of Stanford University graduates and using the students' own accounts of their education, job searches, and first work experiences, Randall Stross provides heartening demonstrations of how multi-capable liberal arts graduates are.
Plutarch that most ancient and eminent historian said, "The mind is not an empty vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled. Imagine school as a vibrant garden to grow in knowledge and virtue. Imagine school not as a place to sit and listen to lectures for a few years, but rather, a way of life and pursuit of most noble ends. Imagine school as an ongoing conversation about the most profound ideas mankind has conceived: truth, justice, liberty, beauty, poetry, drama, God, and the afterlife to name a few. Imagine being taught by the greatest masters of the mind that walked on this earth: Plato, Jefferson, Franklin, Locke, Voltaire, Dostoyevsky, Dickens, Aristotle, Aquinas, and more, who though dead, live on in Great Books. If you can imagine such a place, you've imagined a Great Books or Liberal Arts education.
