Abstract

This chapter proposes, therefore, to use the framework of the "democratic turn" as a way of addressing some fundamental issues in classical pedagogy, by applying it to one particularly important example, the Cambridge Latin Course (henceforth CLC). The nature of Latin's exclusivity (or not) is of topical interest, and we will briefly return to current political contexts at the end of the discussion; but to understand the present climate, we also need to understand the changes, or turns, that have occurred over the past few decades, that have brought us to a place where claims for Latin's classlessness can be made.
