It is simply amazing that in times such as these there are still general educators worrying over what to do to behave like one. I strongly suspect, furthermore, that the largest worriers are those who insist that any education worth its weight must be painfully extracted from existing disciplines and refashioned (i.e., "generalized") to meet the needs of a so-called liberal arts program. The principal oversight in such approaches lies in mistaking things which, on the one hand, occur with the greatest frequency for those which, on the other, are of general importance to life and experience. It is in the latter that we must find clues to the nature and scope of a general education; the former we should consign to the more meticulous care of the specialized disciplines.
