Manly P. Hall - From Knowledge to Wisdom

\"To sum up: the Platonic theory is that education should be primarily moral and spiritual—not mechanical or utilitarian—having for its ultimate end the ascent of the soul to the Supreme Good; that the specific object of education should be the development of moral and intellectual character; that a purely mental education, severed from a moral, and having no reference to true spiritual culture, is not only worthless but positively deleterious.\"

— THOMAS M. JOHNSON, \"Platonic Theory of Education\" in Bibliotheca Platonica, Vol. I
