An invitation to a sheepish existence.

April 22, 2010 § Leave a comment

John Locke’s essay Some Thoughts Concerning Education:

“Be sure not to let your son be bred up in the art and formality of disputing, either practicing it himself, or admiring it in others; unless, instead of an able man, you desire to have him an insignificant wrangler, opiniator in discourse, and priding himself in contradicting others; or which is worse, questioning everything, and thinking there is no such thing as truth to be sought, but only victory in disputing.”
