Liberal Studies: An Outline Course, Volume One serves as a starting-point for provoking serious and informed discussion of liberal studies. This book basically compiles a series of essays or articles on selected topics of general interest, followed in most cases by a list of quotations taken from various authors. Such topics include education, use of studying Latin or Greek, and pacifism. This publication also pays attention to things of a less specific nature, but things that are interesting and important just the same and things that will be profitable if considered. Other topics include history and progress, law and justice, patriotism and rise of nationalism, science and Christianity, and truth and nature of reality. This volume is recommended for students taking liberal studies and teachers teaching the subject.
