Let me conclude with a statement from Maxwell Goldberg, the author of Design in Liberal Learning: "Without becoming amorphous or aimless," writes Professor Goldberg, "we are trying to replace the static, mechanical, closed-system, monistic, and self-contained routine thinking of conventional liberal learning with the open-structured, pluralistic, multilinear, multilectic thinking of the new liberal learning." He provides us with an excellent metaphor here: the concept of "freedom flowing into form."* And I might add, in our case we do not seek a "new humanism," but rather seek to revitalize the presentation of that humanism which is an integral part of our tradition.
