Poetic Knowledge and the Cultivation of Loves: How love prepares us for truth and goodness


Dr. Matthew Bianco


Presented at the CiRCE Spring Regional Conference 2023.

Many classical educators and Christian educators believe that truth is the most important thing we can teach our children: what it is and how to perceive it. In this talk, Dr. Matthew Bianco will not be arguing against that idea, but instead will consider that love, properly understood and cultivated, prepares us better to perceive truth, recognize truth, and be loyal to truth. Loyalty to the truth is just as important, if not more so, then knowing it. Educating children to love the truth will help them to be loyal to it, and makes knowing it a more profitable lesson.
