More on Liberal Arts Education

Are they declining--undoubtedly.  Will defending them help?  Not a whit. The cause is a massive cultural shift in which personal enrichment refers almost exclusively to monetary compensation, not to the deepening and broadening perspective that the Liberal Arts can give. But will they die?  No, they may become like philosophy departments--the refuge of a few who don't fit in anywhere else.  They may become compact for a while to experience a resurgence in the future (or not).  But there will always be a few who want to pursue this end--they will not die--but they have already and may continue to recede.
