Rethinking the Curriculum: Toward an Integrated, Interdisciplinary College Education


The 18 contributions and editor's introduction included in this volume represent some of the most dynamic thinking on the how and why of curricular change today. The essays are founded on the consensus that most of what passes for liberal studies and general education is so out of touch with today's world that it is simply beside the point. One of the chief inadequacies brought out by the text is the failure of current disciplines to deal with the inherent "messiness" and complexity of real world issues such as hunger, conflict, and pollution. The contributors identify the issues, provide insights on what can be done and present several challenges as well.
