The liberal arts can be the key to multi-faceted academic and professional success.

Thomas Langtry has published a book indicating several reasons for bringing the liberal arts tradition back to the modern-day college curriculum. With “Relevance of the Liberal Arts in Twenty-First Century Academics,” originally written in support of an essay that was published in a 2014 journal, Langtry has chosen to widen readership and increase awareness of his arguments by publishing them in book form.

The book gives detailed and in-depth answers to three main arguments about the liberal arts: Why has the liberal arts tradition fallen out of favor in the education profession? What does the evidence indicate regarding the results of this development? What evidence supports the argument that restoring the liberal arts foundation to education would benefit interested parties?

“Relevance of the Liberal Arts in Twenty-First Century Academics” also gives readers a chance to formulate their own insights into the three main questions that Langtry attempts to answer. Langtry provides an interactive format for examining these crucial questions, which takes the form of a series of pro and con statements supported by quotations from authoritative sources of both advocates and opponents of the liberal arts tradition. Langtry ends each chapter with compelling conclusions. This book is highly informative, especially in its explanation of relevant terms such as “andragogy,” “pedagogy,” “objectivism,” and “constructivism.”

“Relevance of the Liberal Arts in Twenty-First Century Academics” is a highly recommended resource for modern educators and students. The upcoming 2018 BookExpo New Title Showcase this May 30 to June 1, 2018, is a perfect opportunity to grab a copy of this informative book.
