From the Commonplace Book: Jamie Smith on The Purpose of Education

" is not primarily a heady project concerned with providing information; rather, education is most fundamentally a matter of formation, a task of shaping and creating a certain kind of people. What makes them a distinctive kind of people is what they love or desire--what they envision as 'the good life' or the ideal picture of human flourishing."
James K. A. Smith, Desiring the Kingdom (pg. 26)
