Philosopher Citizens

Somebody mentioned in passing during the conference that Mortimer Adler said that not everybody will be an electrician or a lawyer or a football player (or something like that) but that everybody is a citizen and a philosopher.

Wow.

That means that every school must be serious about equipping their students to be citizens (people who know and love justice and seek to introduce her to their circumstances) and philosophers (people who love truth and know how to seek it).

Does yours?
