Quote for the day: Philosophy and plumbing, both legitimate

"The time and problem orientations do not imply that everything adults want to learn is so immediate as fixing the plumbing...For one person, finding out whether beauty lies in a museum painting or in a mountain-top view may constitute a legitimate learning problem. For another person determining how the ancient philosophers combined work with study may be an equally immediate problem." ~~ William A. Draves, How to Teach Adults (1984/1997)
