But I’m Educated! : Links I Like

Interesting read. An education can be priceless, if that is what is on offer.

Of course, this notion falls flat on its face when we discover that education does not give the unreasonable, reason, or the unintellectual, intellect. At its best, education makes philosophers out of thinkers and artists out of drawers. The philosopher may draw, but he will never be an artist. The artist may think, but he will never be a philosopher. And so we must resign ourselves to a most immutable conclusion: education cultivates latent talent, it does not imbue absent talent.

How often do people claim to be educated or declare that you educate yourself when you ask them for proof of certain assertions? With more women in the west earning receiving degrees it may be in their best interest to define and understand what exactly an education is or should be.
