Vocal Point-Dr. E. J. Hutchinson

Dr. E. J. Hutchinson, a professor at Hillsdale College, wrote a piece called The Reformation and Liberal Learning.” 2017, of course, marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. He writes, “One of those effects [of the Reformation] is sometimes thought to be a downgrading of the importance of liberal education, intellectual tradition, and the Western heritage of philosophical inquiry into the natural order via the use of reason.” But are such charges correct? Dr. E. (Eric) J. Hutchinson joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the Reformation and higher education. www.hillsdale.edu
