A Radical Criticism of the Platonic Foundations of Liberal Education (or, "The soul wants what it wants").
Gregory, Marshall W.
Liberal Education, v69 n1 p19-32 Spr 1983
It is concluded from an examination of the Platonic roots of educational philosophy that learning to reason well is not enough in education, but that the most valuable activity to engage in for self-discovery is challenging, through discourse, each other's opinions. (MSE)
