The Atlantic Asks About the Future of Liberal Arts

Perhaps inspired by the entire disruption dialogue, The Atlantic is exploring the elasticity of the liberal arts. Some familiar HarvardX faces weigh in...

At this year's Aspen Ideas Festival, we asked a group of academics within some of America's top universities to weigh in on the fate of higher education. "We won't have liberal arts and sciences at all 50 years from now unless we really understand how to save what's good, but reinvent what's new and needed," says Harvard University education professor Howard Gardner. Other panelists include Sebastian ThrunElisa NewDrew Faust,Erika Christakis, and Nicholas Dirks.
