A Good Day at the University

Hegel teaching

“Education is the art of making man ethical”
― Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

At this late hour I am wiped out and tired, but still stirred deeply by today’s encounter with a pair of Ethics classes. G. W. F Hegel was the subject of our study, and for the first time this semester, as I presented the material, I saw pairs of eyes actually looking back at me with an intensity that I hadn’t detected yet (the masks really are a barrier to me visually). But honestly, I drew genuine strength and encouragement by the way many of those eyes looked back at me as we explored this amazing thinker’s ideas today. I’m sorry I have to wait forty-eight hours before seeing the students again.

Thanks for reading.
