Tradition and Authority in Luigi Giussani's Educational Method

After partaking in a panel on The Life of Luigi Giussani with Alberto Savorana, Margarita Mooney details her understanding of education through Giussani's method. Read her article published on Public Discourse.

"Giussani was clearly speaking from the Catholic intellectual tradition, as do I.
