Know Thyself: Classical Catholic Education and the Discovery of Self


Availability: In stock

Across the United States and around the world, there has been an ongoing resurgence in classical education, including among Catholics. The classical model, rooted in the ancient Socratic method, is flourishing, and classical Catholic schools continue to multiply and grow. But classical education also has its detractors. Some parents and teachers worry that it is impractical, outdated, or, worse, judgmental.     

In Know Thyself, Andrew Youngblood, an educator with decades of experience in classical learning as both a student and teacher, introduces readers to this exciting education alternative and its intellectual and spiritual benefits. Youngblood defines the essence of classical Catholic education, explores its integrated and narrative approach to learning, and presents its transformative power and beauty.     

Through brief vignettes, personal anecdotes from students and teachers, and examples from the classroom, Know Thyself makes a positive case for an education journey that teaches students to see themselves through God’s eyes—and to truly know themselves and who they are called to be.

Foreword by Dale Ahlquist, President of the Society of Gilbert Keith Chesterton.
