Leisure and Knowledge in Education
When a culture is in the process of denying its own roots, it becomes most important to know what these roots are. We had best know what we reject before we reject it. If we are going to build a chair, the first thing we need to know, above all else, is what a chair is. Otherwise, we can do nothing. We are not a culture that never understood what a human being was in his nature and in his destiny. Rather we are a culture that, having once known these things, has decided against living them or understanding them. - James Schall
In this episode, we discuss the way in which education, properly understood, requires leisure (Skolé) so students can apprehend, learn to appreciate, and finally, approximate their lives to that which is good, true, and beautiful in the world.
