When I first proposed this paper some months ago I had a number of specific purposes in mind. First, I'd grown interested in the development of a concept in American higher education which has been termed cooperative education. Secondly, I wondered about the linkages between cooperative education and what traditionally we have called general or liberal education. Thirdly, I wondered if the linkages between these two concepts were of recent origin or have they existed for a long time without formal recognition. Fourthly, I wondered if this " new synthesis" was something that could have a significant impact on the quality of education of today's students, especially those students pursuing a liberal education. Finally I wondered if it was possible to answer all these questions in the short space allotted to me. I am pleased to report that I have, I believe, the answers to the first four questions.
