Forzados a ser Libres:
El caso del Paternalismo

Rousseau649 words

English original here

Paternalismo significa tratar a la gente como niños. Los niños carecen de madurez y sabiduría para tomar sus propias decisiones. Por lo tanto necesitan padres – o gente que ejerza el rol paternal – que les diga que hacer y, en ocasiones, forzarlos a hacerlo.

Spanish translation here

Paternalism means treating people like children. Children lack the maturity and wisdom to make their own decisions. Thus they need parents — or people playing the paternal role — to tell them what to do and, on occasion, to force them to do it.

Why We Meet as We Do:
Thoughts on Liberal Education

Hendrik_ter_Brugghen_-_Heraclitus

Hendrick ter Brugghen, Heraclitus, 1628

2,731 words

Spanish translation here

Editor’s Note:

This is the text of a talk that I gave on August 15, 1996 to an adult education class that I used to run in Atlanta, way back when I was in graduate school. I recall that the actual lecture was much longer and involved discussions of Rousseau, Kant, Schiller, and Hegel. If a tape comes to light, I will dub it and make it available. 

Why do we meet as we do? Read more …
