Shortly after Canadian confederation, Thomas D'Arcy McGee proclaimed that education was "an essential condition of our political independence" and that its role was to form citizens for the new regime. Comparing this idea of education for citizenship, or civic education, to the modern goals of education, Liberal Education, Civic Education, and the Canadian Regime explores the founders' principles, their sources, and the challenges that threaten their vision for Canada. The collection's first essays analyze the political thought of early Canadians such as Brown, McGee, Ryerson, and Bourinot, while later chapters examine enduring principles of liberal democracy derived from Aristotle, de Tocqueville, and Hobbes. The final chapters bring the discussion forward to such topics as the decline of Canadian Catholic liberal arts colleges and the emerging role of our Supreme Court as a self-appointed "moral tutor." Moreover, as it deals with the changing roles of universities in contemporary Canada, Liberal Education, Civic Education, and the Canadian Regime engages current debates about the value and place of a traditional liberal education and the consequences of turning our back on the concepts that inspired our founding leaders. Considering whether Canada’s early documents and traditions can revive past debates and shed light on contemporary issues, this highly original collection presents education as an essential condition of our independence and asks whether current educational principles are threatening Canadians’ capacity for self-government.

Review:

“Liberal Education, Civic Education, and the Canadian Regime departs from the conventional line of thinking about the Canadian founding. It presents a powerfully persuasive case that we need to more profoundly understand the ways in which ideas present at the founding continue to have consequences for Canadian politics.” Patrick Malcolmson, St. Thomas University

“A collection of thoughtful and provocative essays that reflect upon the role and importance of liberal education for civic health in Canada”. Jarrett A. Carty, Concordia University

“Livingstone... provides the reader with a thorough immersion in Canadian political philosophy of education, as well as a rigorous defence of liberal learning as the education best suited to the citizens of a free and democratic country.” - Literary Review
