  4. The True Value of Liberal Arts

Summary

Learn about the power of knowledge that transcends culture and time period.

The True Value of Liberal Arts examines all that can be gained through knowledge of art, natural sciences, sociology, anthropology, music, film, literature, foreign languages, and much more.  All of these elements are integral parts of building a rich, robust culture. 

Of course the so-called hard sciences are vitally important as well, but author Hiroshi Segi would like to show why we would be foolish to overlook the liberal arts.  He draws examples from a variety of artists and pioneers including George Orwell, Miles Davis, and Francis Ford Coppola.
