The Aims of Education
April 17, 1929
WHAT is the first commandment to be obeyed in any educational scheme? It is this: Do not teach too many subjects. The second command is this: What you teach, teach thoroughly. The devil in the scholastic world has assumed the form of a general education consisting of scraps of a large number of disconnected subjects; and, with the artfulness of the serpent, he has entrenched himself behind the entrance examinations of the universities. Culture is activity of thought, and receptiveness to beauty, and humane feeling. Scraps of information have nothing to do with it.
