- Publish Date: 2008-02-27
- Binding: Paperback
- Author: Doug Dix
Harold Shapiro, the former president of Princeton, ventured to say that theology had been divorced from the liberal. Professor Doug Dix's book is about arranging a remarriage. His analysis suggests the divorce goes deeper than Shapiro may have realized. Love has been divorced from learning because money has replaced truth as the object of affection. Now students learn to earn. Natural Literacy strives to motivate students and faculty to instead learn to love. What do we truly want to know? Doug Dix proposes that readers discover authentic answers by repairing their motives and returning to their natural roots. His perspective is innovative and certain to be controversial.
