It is not enough to teach a man a specialty. Through it he may become a kind of useful machine but not a harmoniously developed personality. It is essential that the student acquires an understanding of and a lively feeling for values. He must acquire a vivid sense of the beautiful and of the morally good. Otherwise he—-with his specialized knowledge—-more closely resembles a well-trained dog than a harmoniously developed person. He must learn to understand the motives of human beings, their illusions, and their sufferings in order to acquire a proper relationship to individual fellow-men and to the community.
讓學生獲得對各種價值的理解和感受是很重要的, 他必須能真切地感受到美麗與道德的良善, 否則他的專業知識只是使他更像一隻受過良好訓練的狗, 而不是一個和諧發展的人.
