Why Is Astronomy Concerned an Important Part of the Quadrivium?
Welcome to Ask Andrew, a weekly podcast where Andrew Kern (President of the CiRCE Institute and co-author of the book, Classical Education: The Movement Sweeping America) contemplates important ideas, essential terms, and unavoidable themes in classical education–and what they mean for the day-to-day of teaching and learning.
