The Point of the Liberal Arts

“The point for the liberal arts teacher to keep in mind is that the trivium and quadrivium were established before the pragmatic advantages of those disciplines appeared, developed out of the natural desire of man to know, not because they were immediately practical.”

Marion Montgomery
The Truth of Things, P. 62
