In1985, wefeltwewantedtogivehimagiftforwhathe taught us: how to think criticallyabout ourselvesand our society; how to inform our emotions; how to move from self-knowledge to empathy for others,andhowwithsuchempathy,intum, toenrichandexpandourself- knowledge; and most important, how to integrate a sense of personal autonomy with a sense of responsible living with one's community. For many of us, he was our Socrates. His best, most lively teaching was in the presence of a group of questioning, intellectually hungry students.
