Editorial Reviews

Review

"An impassioned defense of the humanities."--Robert Messenger, Wall Street Journal--Robert Messenger"Wall Street Journal" (10/04/2007)

"In Education's End Kronman succeeds remarkably well, even movingly, in conveying the intellectual and spiritual joy that a serious student can find by participating in the 'great conversation.'"--Ben Wildavsky, Commentary--Ben Wildavsky"Commentary" (04/01/2008)

"In a brilliant, sustained argument that is as forthright, bold, and passionately felt as it is ideologically unclassifiable and original, Anthony Kronman leaps in a bound into the center of America's cultural disputes, not to say cultural wars. Although Kronman's specific area of concern is higher education, his argument will reach far beyond campus walls."--Jonathan Schell, author of The Unconquerable World: Power, Nonviolence and the Will of the People--Jonathan Schell

"Just when we need them most, the humanities have relinquished their role at the heart of liberal education--helping students reflect on what makes life worth living. In this bold and provocative book, Anthony Kronman explains why the humanities have lost their way. With eloquence and passion, he argues that departments of literature, classics, and philosophy can recover their authority and prestige only by reviving their traditional focus on fundamental questions about the meaning of life."--Michael J. Sandel, author of The Case against Perfection and Public Philosophy
--Michael J. Sandel

"Kronman argues his case passionately. His discussion of the transformation of American higher education over the last century and a half is most illuminating."--George Leef, NationalReview.com--George Leef"NationalReview.com" (02/05/2008)

"Kronman unfolds here a sustained argument marked by subtlety, force, nuance, and considerable appeal."--Francis Oakley, President Emeritus, Williams College
--Francis Oakley

"Kronman's study is an important contribution to the discussion about what education is for, and where it is going."--David Clemens, Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies--David Clemens "Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies "

"No question that the humanities are in a bad way in education at the present, and this book offers not just an argument that they should be more highly prized, but a carefully reasoned position of what happened, why it did, and what needs and can be done about it."--Alvin Kernan, author of In Plato's Cave--Alvin Kernan

"An impassioned defense of the humanities." Robert Messenger, "Wall Street Journal"--Robert Messenger"Wall Street Journal" (10/04/2007)"

"In "Education's End" Kronman succeeds remarkably well, even movingly, in conveying the intellectual and spiritual joy that a serious student can find by participating in the 'great conversation.'" Ben Wildavsky, "Commentary"--Ben Wildavsky"Commentary" (04/01/2008)"

About the Author

Anthony T. Kronman is Sterling Professor of Law, Yale Law School. Since stepping down as Dean of the Law School in 2004, he has been teaching in the Directed Studies Program at Yale and devoting himself to the humanities.
