Awakening Wonder: A Classical Guide to Truth, Goodness & Beauty
Study the ideals of Truth, Goodness, and Beauty with the author of this book, Dr. Turley, by taking his short online course on ClassicalU!
With Awakening Wonder, Steve Turley demonstrates that precisely such a recovery is at the heart of the current classical education renewal. Once again, Truth, Goodness, and Beauty are celebrated as those objective values that are essential for cultivating students as flourishing human beings. In these pages, you will discover the history and development of these transcendent values and how they redeem our senses and sanctify our imaginations. Teachers will also learn how to incorporate these values into their teaching to awaken awe and wonder in both themselves and their students.
