What is the Value of a Liberal Arts Education? Celebrating Recent Work by Roosevelt Montás

Roosevelt Montás's recent book, Rescuing Socrates: How the Great Books Changed My Life and Why They Matter for a New Generation, answers the question: What is the Value of a liberal education? Speakers include Andrew Delbanco (Columbia University), David Denby (The New Yorker), Turkuler Isiksel Columbia University) and Dan-el Padilla Peralta (Princeton University). 

Rescuing Socrates describes how four authors—Plato, Augustine, Freud, and Gandhi—had a profound impact on Montás’s life. In doing so, the book drives home what it’s like to experience a liberal education—and why it can still remake lives.
