  • Liberal Arts
    A Brief Summary
  • THE LIBERAL ARTS
    The term liberal arts denotes a curriculum that imparts general knowledge and develops the student’s rational thought and intellectual capabilities, unlike the professional, vocational and technical curricula emphasizing specialization. The contemporary liberal arts comprise studying literature, languages, philosophy, history, mathematics, and science.
  • Where is it from?
    The first school “established” for the liberal arts were based off of the Philosopher Socrates, teacher of Plato, who would just gather with his students and recite information/Philosophy as they walked.
    Plato established the first school of Academia.
  • Philosophy, What’s That?
    Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems, such as existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. It is distinguished from other ways of addressing such problems by its critical, generally systematic approach and its reliance on rational argument. The word "philosophy" comes from the Greek φιλοσοφία (philosophia), which literally means "love of wisdom", and was originally a word referring to the special way of life of early Greek philosophers.
