Philip Phenix.jpg

“Human beings are essentially creatures who have the power to experience meanings. Distinctively human existence consists in a pattern of meanings. Furthermore, general education is the process of engendering essential meanings.”

–Philip H. Phenix (American Mathematician, Physicist, Theologian, Philosopher, Educator and Arthur I. Gates Professor Emeritus of Philosophy and Education at Teachers College, Columbia University, 1915-2002)

“Realms of Meaning: A Philosophy of the Curriculum for General Education (Perspective Through a Retrospective Volume 8)” (Philip H. Phenix)
