Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter highlights the principal images, arguments, insights, and discoveries of the preceding chapters, in which the legacies of Aristotle and Ignatius play a prominent role. It bears down more deeply into the question of shame and outlines how these pedagogical ideas play out and come together in the undergraduate program. It also offers eleven theses on young adult vocational development in the context of Catholic higher education. It looks back, it looks deeper, it looks at a model, it listens, and draws some brief conclusions. It is summative but also explores the theme of shame more deeply, offers one model of what the Pedagogical Circle might look like within a university curriculum, gives students within that program a chance to speak, and concludes with some reflections on young adult vocational development.
