The new humanist is primarily dedicated to the task of equipping his charges with the tools for developing their own mature value systems instead of absorbing ad nauseam then puking back a la Pavlov the various introjected value systems which American education has traditionally attempted to force on its nurselings. Education in a self-enhancing and life-enhancing manner rather than indoctrination for a cog's role in the corporate state, that is the task the new humanists set for themselves.
But let's get back to the main topic: identifying the new humanities teacher and those characteristics which mark him as the "preacher in the cage." As a good pedagogical writer should, I have developed these in two sets of categories, the Four C's, and the Three E's.
