Premodern Advice for the Postmodern Young.
Ozment, Steven
Public Interest, n119 p54-67 Spr 1995
Examines the advice being given to today's college graduating classes in commencement speeches and compares it to that given in early premodern society. It shows how the old advice centered on basic skills and virtues that empowered youth to create an independent and worthy life, but today, youth are mostly getting adults' guilty conscience and fantasies of redemption.
