Liberal education and the failure of America's colleges to provide it have been discussed frequently in the pages of The New Criterion. Traditional core curricula have largely been abandoned in favor of unfocused, individualized programs of personal interest, especially since the latter half of the twentieth century. Cultural erudition has been replaced by "cultural sensitivity," to the detriment of our students and our society. Joseph Epstein, a frequent contributor to The New Criterion, joins Andrew Ferguson and Peter Robinson to discuss the problem in an interview for the Hoover Institution's Uncommon Knowledge series.
