Although Latin wasn´t my favorite language at school, I had to think of this quote today.
Sometimes I have the feeling that some people don´t like to reflect because this process could be too much work for their brains, could be too exhausting. For others it is a worthless brain-process because they are told by others what to do in any situation --so no need for them to think ....
But where is autonomy? What about self responsibility?
Some people seem to have lost the ability to think for themselves-- or even think at all...frustrating to realize.
Has education failed in these cases??
