must be made clear that there is no need to assume that the relationship between
education as improvement of man, and education as perfection of techniques should
be one of thesis and antithesis; rather it should be one of synthesis. The study of
man alone is inadequate, and the study of techniques unconcerned with the improvement of
man would be meaningless and even undesirable.
one respect a highly skilled technician if he were also a thief, a selfish man and
an unfaithful husband? Technical skill does not make a good man, nor does the possession
of better techniques automatically make one a better man. On the other hand, a good man
without civil engineering training cannot be expected to build an adequate bridge. Nor
will sympathy alone relieve a mans pain or hunger.
