About the Author

Daniel R. DeNicola is Professor of Philosophy at Gettysburg College, where he was Provost for over a decade. Previously, he held similar titles for parallel periods at Rollins College. He earned his doctorate in Philosophy of Education from Harvard University, where he has served as a Visiting Scholar.


For persons concerned for the fate of liberal education - it does appear to be in jeopardy2 - and engaged with the debates swirling around and within it, Learning to Flourish is a useful resource, even if one is not persuaded by all the arguments. Although I am not familiar with all the writers to whom he refers, I think DeNicola does well, for the most part, to identify salient issues and take readers through alternatives and challenges to his claims.
Wiley Online Library
Learning to Flourish is highly relevant to today's debates over the nature and value of liberal education. It addresses fundamental issues underpinning any defensible concept of liberal education and speaks compellingly to contemporary challenges.
