About Our People

Joseph Clair (William Penn Honors Program) published an article, “The Lost Purpose of Learning,” in the Sept. 26 edition of First Things. The piece is a foretaste of his forthcoming book in Bloomsbury’s new Reading Augustine series, due out in November. The book, titled On Education, Formation, Citizenship and the Lost Purpose of Learning, claims, like the article, that Augustine’s Christian vision of higher education is worth recovering and works out a practical roadmap for reconnecting the intellectual enterprise of learning to a fulfilled life of knowing God and loving others on college campuses today.
