A warning against some dangers, tendencies that can erode the quality and meaning of education. First, the danger of undue emphasis on science and technology. A second danger is in the rapidly growing impersonalism of higher education. A third is the danger of missing the real, though more intangible point - the development of taste, of judgment, of sensitivity. It is not enough to be free. It is a question of what you are free to do -- and what you are free not to do. What the college should provide is a climate, a fellowship in which these judgments will be, perhaps not perfect because perfection is not given to us mortals, but better than they would be without the education.
