“Freedom of the Intellect is a Sacred Thing”: A Brief Exploration of Freedom, Liberal Education, and the St. John’s Program.
Audio recording of a lecture given by Dean J. Walter Sterling on August 26, 2021 as part of the Dean's Lecture & Concert Series. The Dean's Office has provided this description of the event: "Mr. Sterling will explore the contested idea of freedom that underlies any authentic liberal education, including the St. John’s Program of Instruction. He will argue that the difficulty of specifying the end of such an education reinforces, rather than undermines, the necessity of undertaking with courage the attempt to free one’s mind. He will briefly discuss the role of books in such an attempt."
