In Defence of High Culture (Journal of Philosophy of Education)
By: John Gingell (author), Ed Brandon (author)Paperback
1 - 2 weeks availability
The authors attempt to outline a notion of high culture and its role within education, following a broad modern tradition springing from Matthew Arnold. The book is written with a concern for clarity and argument that is not always found within that tradition, and the authors reject the elitist conclusions of many who have followed the tradition, such as Eliot, Leavis, Bantock and Scruton.
John Gingell is Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at University College, Northampton. Ed Brandon is Programme Co--ordinator at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill, Barbados.
