9781331162544: The Mystery of Education: And Other Academic Performances (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Mystery of Education: And Other Academic Performances

Since the beginning Of this year 1909 I have been called on no less than five times to speak before audiences gath ered together on occasions of academic solemnity. Such performances are not quite cheerfully portentous either for us who take part in them or for those who are obliged to sit at our feet. Neither can quite avoid an underlying assumption that they will result in little more than fresh demonstrations of the hapless futility of sermons. Yet, after all, few circumstances can more clearly challenge one to do one's best.
