“If education is rightly understood [as liberal], it will
be understood as the cultivation of the intellect.
The cultivation of the intellect is the same good
for all men in all societies. It is, moreover, the
good for which all other goods are only means.
Material prosperity and civil order, justice
and the moral virtues are means to
the cultivation of the intellect.”
