“The highest role of the educator is the maieutic role of Socrates: to help the student come to himself not as a consumer of experience but as a sovereign individual. . . But unless [the student] struggles for himself, unless he knows that there is a struggle, he is going to be just what the planners think he is.” (W. Percy, “The Loss of the Creature”). Thanks for the helpful post. It turned me to Percy while reading the Apology (and T. West’s spirited introduction to the Apology).
