Item description for Dominican Approaches in Education: Towards the Intelligent Use of Liberty (Dominican Series) by Gabrielle Kelly Op & Kevin Saunders...
Bringing together a range of scholarly and reflective contributions from every continent, this book offers a wide-ranging view of education in the Dominican tradition. Its focus is the sources, principles and philosophy of Dominican values in education as exemplified by some key figures in the tradition. At the same time it provides a broad sample of the many contexts in which Dominican education, understood in the widest sense of the word and integral to the very purpose of Dominican life, has found its expression past and present. The book has chapters on Dominic, Rose of Lima, las Casas, Catherine of Siena and Aquinas. Philosophers, educators, activists, formators, healers, theologians, artists, preachers, and teachers at many levels all find a place in this book. 37 contributors, including Timothy Radcliffe OP, Albert Nolan OP and Suzanne Nofke OP. Forewords by the present Master of the Dominican Order, Fr Carlos Costa OP and the former head of Dominican Sisters International, Margaret Ormond OP. A must for all those interested in the values and philosophy of Dominican education in schools, universities and pastoral work of any kind.
