#22: The Great Tradition: An Interview with Richard Gamble

Is now available in Itunes & Stitcher. We would love to know what you think, so leave us a review and rating on ITunes!

Welcome to Season 3 of The Classical Homeschool Podcast. At the Classical Homeschool Podcast, our heart is to take on the work of wrestling through the, sometimes difficult and philosophical, ideas presented throughout the classical education movement and bring them down to earth, specifically and practically for the classical homeschooling mom. This season we are cross referencing Norms and Nobility (by David Hicks) with The Great Tradition (by Richard Gamble). Hopefully, this journey will be fruitful in understanding the references made by Hicks bringing all of us deeper into the Classical Tradition.

Richard M. Gamble is Professor of History and Anna Margaret Ross Alexander Professor of History and Politics at Hillsdale College. In addition to The Great Tradition, his publications focus on American religion, war, and culture. He serves on the editorial boards of Modern Age, Humanitas, and the American Conservative. You can learn more about Richard Gamble and his works on is Amazon author page and his Hillsdale College page.

“Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Thessalonians 5:23 ESV

  1. Are you going to put out a reading schedule or how you are going to proceed through The Great Tradition?

  2. I would love to read Wendell Berry’s essay “Loss of the University” mentioned in this podcast. Do you know which collection of essays it’s included in? Love this podcast, learn SO much! Thanks!
