Review of Metaphysics 31 (1):119-121 (1977)

These essays are fundamentally a credo and partly a manifesto. The author identifies problems in the college teaching of the Humanities, and after description, analysis, and illustration, he makes brief recommendations. He uses "Humanities" to englobe Philosophy and Religion, and largely neglects the fine and performing arts. Throughout, his emphasis is on reading skills. The sections are numbered through six chapters and a Prologue, implying one unfolding argument, which is largely the case.
