Andrew Kern: Teaching and The Abolition of Man
Andrew Kern, founder and president of the CIRCE Institute, joins the podcast to discuss classical education and its continued growth, how to teach teachers classically, and one of his favorite books for teachers, C.S. Lewis’s The Abolition of Man. He explains some of the book’s major points, which include how society is tending towards erasing humanity by attempting to control it and how many modern schools attempt not to instruct children in truth and virtue but condition them according to the desires of central planners. The CIRCE Institute teaches people how to conduct classical education. We also mention Kern’s book, Classical Education: The Movement Sweeping America.
