A. Todd Franklin, professor of philosophy, conducted six days of workshops from Aug. 2-7 on the nature of a liberal arts education as part of an academic summer camp for students of LOGOS, a private high school in Tbilisi, Georgia. Founded by Giorgi Chavleishvili ’08, LOGOS is unlike other high schools in the Republic of Georgia, providing students with a full college prep curriculum consisting mainly of small discussion oriented classes.

 

In addition to its regular curriculum, LOGOS conducts a 10-day summer camp in the mountain region of Racha that uses a rugged wilderness setting to create an educational experience that integrates intellectual contemplation and practical application. Emphasizing the flexibility of the liberal arts, Franklin provided students with an overview of various facets of the liberal arts and led them through a variety of exercises that helped them comprehend the way the a liberal arts education translates into a host of important life skills.
