Liberal vs. Useful Education: Reevaluating the Historical Appeals to Benjamin Franklin and Aristotle.
Kimball, Bruce A.
Liberal Education, v67 n4 p286-92 Win 1981

Both of these historical appeals are flawed, however, a fact revealing deeper misunderstanding in the contemporary debate. (Author/MSE)
