Contemplative Pedagogy Initiative

In its series on Contemplative Pedagogy, CET invites you to a discussion of

Excellent Sheep: The Miseducation of the American Elite and the Way to a Meaningful Life
In that recent book William Deresiewicz claims that, as students turn away from the humanities to more practical subjects such as economics and finance, they lose their ability to think independently.

David Albertson (associate professor of religion) and Mark Weinstein (associate professor of finance and business economics) will put that claim under the microscope and invite audience participation with a Q&A. Copies of the book are available gratis by request from CET (with an implied promise to read it beforehand if possible).
