"Stratford Caldecott's words about beauty are themselves beautiful, and also wise; learned and also arresting. He offers a rare combination of intelligence and profound vision, yet combines this with accessibility and luminous transparency."--Catherine Pickstock, University of Cambridge
"C.S. Lewis envisioned modern education as the irrigation of deserts. Caldecott here brings nourishing water to the cry of the modern imagination: 'I thirst'. Drink deeply, from a book brim-full with the living water capable of transforming our educational practices."--Cyrus P. Olsen III, University of Scranton
"In this insightful book, Stratford Caldecott has presented a way to understand education that includes philosophy, theology, the arts, literature, the studies of beauty and truth and what is good. It is a rare book that understands the unity of knowledge; this is one of those rare books."--James V. Schall, SJ, Georgetown University
