An interesting discussion based on travel experiences to London and Edinburgh. It revolves around the seventeenth and eighteenth century debate in various fields such as art an architecture. The ancient vs. modern debate is still being waged to this day. It calls to mind to me, important questions that we should all consider about the nature and content of education, educational approaches.
Perhaps the answers society seeks, lay in a balanced approach...one that remains to be adequately explored and applied.
Have a read of this article, and let me know what you think.
