Thinking with Newman - Educating with Intention Today

Thinking with Newman - Educating with Intention Today

In 1852, John Henry Newman presented a series of lectures examining three matters of higher education: the nature of knowledge, the role of religious belief, and the importance of a broad, liberal education for university students. These lectures, presented in Dublin at his University Church, became the basis of Newman’s life work, The Idea of a University.
