What does it mean to have a “liberal arts education”? How is it different from some other sort of education, and what might that kind of education be? Is a liberal arts education important and, if so, why aren’t we talking about it more?

Professor Linton makes reference to a PBS documentary on the “tank man.” This very important documentary can be viewed here http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/tankman/view/
