Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of . . .

From: The Journal of General Education
Volume 62, Number 4, 2013
pp. 277-296 | 10.1353/jge.2013.0028



With the hope of inspiring readers to reimagine the centrality of general education in constituting young adult capacities to create and sustain collective self-governance, this essay describes two courses and one activity built around public problems. General education viewed as a human right as well as a shared responsibility can thus serve as a college-level introduction to the habits and pleasures of lifelong collaborative learning, illustrating education’s centrality in constituting the future of participatory democracy.
