A Society of Strangers: Education for Citizenship in the Post-Modern World




By Roger Scruton. Published 1997. ISBN 9780718714307



Detailed Description

Plato was fascinated by the question of how 'a person should be educated in order to be a functioning part of the polis?' In A Society of Strangers Scruton relates this question to modern Western society in which he sees a relinquishing of responsibility for one another and a blind trust in those in charge to provide effective systems of education.
