Lewis argues that a liberal arts education will become increasingly important in the twenty-first century because the automation economy requires more than ever that individuals develop the cognitive flexibility and the habits of mind that allow for life-long learning. This article offers some historical context for the efforts of Yale and NUS to found a new liberal arts college in Asia. Lewis argues that liberal arts education attempts to shape students’ characters through engagement in a shared community shaped by conversations across various disciplines and points of view.
