What Makes a Person “Educated”?

“At present there are differences of opinion…for all peoples do not agree as to the things that the young ought to learn, either with a view to virtue or with a view to the best life, nor is it clear whether their studies should be regulated more with regard to intellect or to regard to character.”

Aristotle (384-322 B.C.)
