The Humanities Return

January 1933
America;1/7/1933, Vol. 48 Issue 14, p325
The author reflects on the return of humanities as a foundational course for technical and professional schools. He argues that an architect must know something beyond blue prints, and the physician must realize that all the world is not pills, powders, and a patient. The author points that even engineers are insisting upon the necessity of the humanistic studies in the college. He concludes that in this reversal to the standards of older day, Catholic schools win a striking advantage.
