None at Living Room

We will read and debate some of Postman's most provocative work, and try to understand his central argument about why the school system fails. It is in short: that we need new gods.

In this class Lev Moscow will lead a discussion on Postman's theory of education. We will read and debate some of Postman's most provocative work, and try to understand his central argument about why the school system fails. It is in short: that we need new gods.

What is Think Olio?


Think Olio is here to put the liberation back into the liberal arts.

Classically, the liberal arts, were the education considered essential for a free person to take an active part in civic life. To counter a humanities that has been institutionalized and dehumanized we infuse critical thinking, openness, playfulness, and compassion into our learning experience.
