How do American intellectuals try to achieve their political and social goals? By what means do they articulate their hopes for change? John McGowan seeks to identify the goals and strategies of contemporary humanistic intellectuals who strive to shape the politics and culture of their time. In a lively mix of personal reflection and shrewd analysis, McGowan visits the sites of intellectual activity (scholarly publications, professional conferences, the classroom, and the university) and considers the hazards of working within such institutional contexts to effect change outside the academy.
Democracy's Children considers the historical trajectory that produced current intellectual practices. McGowan links the growing prestige of "culture" since 1800 to the growth of democracy and the obsession with modernity and explores how intellectuals became both custodians and creators of culture. Caught between fears of culture's irrelevance and dreams of its omnipotence, intellectuals pursue a cultural politics that aims for wide-ranging social transformations.
For better or worse, McGowan says, the humanities are now tied to culture and to the university. The opportunities and frustrations attendant on this partnership resonate with the larger successes and failures of contemporary democratic societies. His purpose in this collection of essays is to illuminate the conditions under which intellectuals in a democracy work and at the same time to promote intellectual activities that further democratic ideals.

"What do we have to do so that education can have a heart again?" This is the question that recurs throughout Steiner's lecture cycle of 1923. Above all, we need to learn to see all of human life as an interconnected whole, from the child's "pre-academic" struggles to learn to walk, talk, and think, to illnesses in later years that can be traced back to educational malpractice.
Human nature consists of multiple triads: body, soul, and spirit; intellect, heart, and will; and nervous and sensory system, rhythmic system, and metabolic and limb system. We experience three additional "births" beyond that of the physical body: the birth of the etheric at the change of teeth, the birth of the astral at puberty, and the birth of the ego at the traditional age of majority, 21.
And of course the cycle offers many wise insights for educators from imaginative play to the teaching of reading, music, the importance of handwork and more.
Also included is an extraordinary introduction to a eurythmy performance.
