Look for my article, “Education and the Need for Order” in the new Society for Classical Learning Journal. Here’s an excerpt:
Knowledge does not come to us already ordered; we must order it. And in order for us to order anything, we must ourselves be ordered. In short, the problem is not information; the problem is us. Knowledge—however much or little there is—does not come to us already ordered; it awaits an orderly mind to impose an order on it, an order which should reflect the outside material and metaphysical order—what Christian philosopher Charles Taylor has called the ontic logos, the very order of reality.
Where do we find such an order?
We’ll post the link on the SCL website when it’s up. See other articles on similar issues in the articles section of Memoria Press website.
