John ...is an astoundingly complex place filled with an astounding variety of people and creatures, but the knowledge and understanding which our predecessors hand down to us, assuming we are receptive to it, allow us to reach greater success and perhaps even greater contentment than they ever could. Of course any philosophy of education which credits Camus is likely to be a bit on the abstract side, but my perspective has at least one very real...

Mimi ...and internal consulting, but have a hard time imagining not teaching in some capacity, hence Varsity Tutors.
