What is the Western Tradition?
In this episode, the 4th of our series on the Four Elements of Classical Education, Renee and Karen are joined by Dr. Matthew Bianco to discuss the place of the Western Tradition in Cl. Ed.: What the Western Tradition is and why it is important. He suggests that the place to start teaching the Tradition is with Aesop's Fables which embody the virtues and provide the ideas, images, and symbols that permeate Classical Education, and with his usual insight, he encourages us to begin with reading and enjoying the stories-fairy tales and myths--with no need to analyze or dissect.
