Most of the articles we read about general education are written by those who either teach or administer some kind of general education program. I think it might be valuable to know the viewpoint of someone who has been trying to educate himself generally throughout a lifetime.

The interdisciplinary courses which many schools now have seem to me to be a great improvement over the general education program which prevailed in my undergraduate days , which was the still quite prevalent one of a certain number of credit hours in the various academic divisions. My feeling is, however, that one more last step needs to be taken in general education , and that step is from the several interdisciplinary courses to one transdisciplinary course that will integrate all knowledge which is thought of as general education.
