Welcome to The Classical Homeschool Podcast. At the Classical Homeschool Podcast, our heart is to take on the work of wrestling through the, sometimes difficult and philosophical, ideas presented throughout the classical education movement and bring them down to earth, specifically and practically for the classical homeschooling mom.
In this episode, we tackle the differences between ancient man and modern man. If you have David Hicks' book, Norms and Nobility, we are talking about passages on the bottom of page 5 and the top of page 6. What are the differences? How do those differences affect our lives? Our homeschools? Our souls? Why do we align ourselves with the ancient man in classical education?
As we further examine the attitude of the ancient man and the transformative power of education, we identify how important normative questions are to building the moral foundations of a man as well as the experiences of knowledge that lead man to have relationships with the knowledge.
With that relationship in mind, Jennifer and Ashley connect the importance of liturgy for aligning and ordering man to harmony of the created universe. What man does and how man does those things is integral in making the whole man.
Lastly, Jennifer and Ashley talk about concrete examples in their homeschools and how to evaluate where liturgies are necessary in our daily lives as well as connecting the natural rhythms God has given man to how man is to experience and participate in His love and generosity. Enjoy the show!
