Dialectical Teaching in a Righteous Age

F. Scott Fitzgerald posited that "The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function."  Venturing to their mobile studios, the Garaventa Center shines the spotlight on English professor Lars Erik Larson, PhD, most recent winner of UP's Outstanding Teaching Award. Prof. Larson draws upon Pope Francis, Jonathan Haidt, and others to give listeners a glimpse into how he challenges his students to engage with conflicting ideas and not merely function, but flourish. 4/29/14.
