Dante in the Homeschool
This was an exciting episode for me, Ashley, personally. I love this amazing guest, mostly because we can really dig into the classical tradition and challenge each other with our differing knowledge bases. I hope that you enjoy this interview as much as I did. Erin makes me laugh and brings my heart to Jesus in every conversation. She is sharing her love of Dante with us, so put your ear buds in and get ready to laugh. Side note: It was Melrose Place...not 90210...LOL ... that I was thinking of!

A Canon of Humanity
Taking a side street off of the topic of moral imagination, we are discussing Ashley's thesis concerning the idea of a canon of humanity.

However, Classical Education is not tied to an earthly structure but is based on more lofty ideals. Join us while we explore the topic!

#30: John Henry Newman and the Quest for Knowledge
Welcome to Season 3 of 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. This season we are cross referencing Norms and Nobility (by David Hicks) with The Great Tradition (by Richard Gamble). Hopefully, this journey will be fruitful in understanding the references made by Hicks bringing all of us deeper into the Classical Tradition.
