Dorothy Sayers on the Liberal Arts

"Is not the great defect of our education today--a defect traceable through all the disquieting symptoms of trouble that I have mentioned--that although we often succeed in teaching our pupils "subjects," we fail lamentably on the whole in teaching them how to think: they learn everything, except the art of learning.-- Dorothy Sayers, "The Lost Tools of Learning"

I have placed a link to this excellent essay under the Liberal Arts heading in the right column.
