THE CRISIS OF AMERICAN EDUCATION AND REFORMS PROPOSALS ACCORDING TO ALLAN BLOOM
Languages of publication
The article is focused on Allan Bloom’s thought about American education. First, while investigating the symptoms of the crisis of American education and upbringing, it sees them manifested both in the structure of university curricula and academic staff as well as the students, their knowledge, customs, and culture. Secondly, while analyzing advantages of education in the field of liberal arts—where the word “liberal” is used in the context of artes liberales—it presents Bloom’s belief that the only serious solution to the crisis of American education is to restore the ideal of an educated man shaped by great literary works and works of the greatest thinkers.
