The Risk of Education

Discovering Our Ultimate Destiny

Giussani’s work presents the argument that an effective education gives a young person the fundamental support of tradition and historical perspective to nurture the development of her ability to understand and discern.

Without proposals and reasons that exist in the present, without criticism, without the question "Why?" the young person, in Giussani's eyes, is a fragile leaf separated from the branch. This book, an English translation of an Italian work first published in 1995, offers inspiring principles and advice for educating youth and encouraging them to become engaged participants in society.
