2024 Speaker Topic

 

Reinvigorating the Contemporary Quadrivium

In pursuit of teaching what is true, good, and beautiful, classical Christian educators are challenged to honor the quadrivium portion of the seven liberal arts. Today, as in days gone by, the enactment of the quadrivium is largely inconsistent and remains a tenacious and unsolved problem among curriculum designers. A commitment to teaching these comprehensive mathematical arts with fidelity can be reinvigorated by matching the philosophical underpinnings of the quadrivium to modern scientific inquiry when one keeps their eyes on pursuit of the transcendent.
