Introduction wrote:Discontent with our educational system; the classics as scapegoats; yet the predominance of classical education in Germany shows that it is consistent with the highest scientific achievement
Some opinions on the value of classical education as a preparation for a scientific career
Our real weakness lies in our natural indifference to knowledge
This due (a) to the insufficiency of our secondary and university education in the past
(b) to our university system doing little, in comparison with the German system, to foster the belief in knowledge
