04/02/2013: Kinser on Learning for Learning’s Sake

[O]ne should not engage in wishful reminiscence of a golden age, where pure institutions offered learning for its own sake and students desired only to develop a meaningful philosophy of life. It is a revisionist historian who suggests that time ever existed and a quixotic venture to see it recaptured.

– Kevin Kinser
From Main Street to Wall Street, pg. 125
