As a young person in college, I was extremely privileged to be able to study the classics of Western Civilization. As a freshman, my fellow students and I read primary sources translated from Ancient Greek into English, and we questioned, discussed, thought, and wrote about these ideas. We learned about Ancient Greek literature, mathematics, science, philosophy, and other thoughts. Of course, this kind of study might not be what some people believe is the ideal education, but for me it was pure joy.
