regarding its purposes are commonly accepted. The first is that the main purpose of
a liberal education is not the mere acquisition of a grand fund of miscellaneous knowl-
edge, although a considerable knowledge of many subjects is a hallmark of the liberally


educated man and, in fact, is basic to his thinking on all subjects.


The second is that


a more important purpose of a liberal education is the liberating of the mind of the
individual from the shackles of ignorance, narrowmindedness, prejudice, superstition,
and tolerance.


As liberally educated men and women you should have learned to

which as a practical matter, it never


is on any question of any moment) before making up your mind to think for yourself
in a logical manner, free from prejudice and rationalizing, and to voice your conclu-


sions, and the grounds on which they are based, in a cogent and convincing way.
