The Intellectual Properties of Learning: A Prehistory from Saint Jerome to John Locke

The ideas that I uncovered in the STS Honors Program will help generally frame my outlook on the world and help me shape my personal and professional philosophies as I go. The communicative skills are universally-relevant. My deepened understanding of the process of producing public knowledge gives me a strong foundation as a citizen and thinker.
