“The Fruits by Which We’ll Know Them”
by Tracy Lee Simmons
Many know what a classical education consists of by now–the rigorous reading, the drills, the slow progress that often doesn’t feel like progress while it’s happening. And we know the frustration–and sometimes tears–accompanying a classical training of the hard, honest kind. But what might the product of that training in excellence look like clothed on young people a few years later when they stand on the brink of adulthood? Which virtues are they likely to practice, which vices to avoid? Such are the themes Tracy will take up in his lecture.
