Previous Section   267. THERE ARE NO TEACHERS   Next Section

There are no Teachers.  As thinkers we ought only to speak of self teaching.  The instruction of the young by others is either an experiment performed upon something as yet unknown and unknowable, or else a thorough levelling process, in order to make the new member of society conform to the customs and manners that prevail for the time being.  In both cases the result is accordingly unworthy of a thinker — the handiwork of parents and teachers, whom some valiantly honest person has called "nos ennemis naturels”.  One day, when, as the world thinks, we have long since finished our education, we discover ourselves.  Then begins the task of the thinker, and then is the time to summon him to our aid — not as a teacher, but as a self taught man who has experience.
