The purpose of learning is not to mold something formless into something having form. It’s not to perform a kind of soul-alchemy by which human dross becomes gold. What is human is not dross, in God’s vision as articulated by the Church, or in Miss Mason’s vision, either. It is not clay. It has within itself, “especially if it accepts the inspiration of the Christian faith,” the capacity to create and sustain civilization.
