Abstract

Volumes have been written on this topic and it would be the height of temerity to assume that anything really new could be contributed in this paper. Opinions, of course, differ and one justification for this discussion lies in the exchange of ideas which it may provoke. Another reason for discussing this subject stems from the present movement in colleges and secondary schools to inject the concept of so-called "general education" into the curriculum. The best-known effort of this sort is centered in Harvard College and has been reported in the volume "General Education in a Free Society." The general education idea postulates that, regardless of the vocational aims of the student, certain basic training should be given to everyone.
