This edition of collected remarks (from the many thousands of pages of notebooks from 1950 to 1978) reflect Bouwsma's concern with the role of philosophy in education, particularly liberal arts education and the role of reading literature in it. Entries on these and related subjects reflect Bouwsma's engagement with Wittgenstein - his conversations with him and his reading of Wittgenstein's philosophy. Over his 50-year teaching career, Bouwsma frequently discussed the value of teaching and reading literature, and kept track of such discussions in his notebooks. His views on this subject were always controversial and guaranteed a lively discussion. The editors have also included some additional general discussions of what a university education is, and some of Bouwsma's commentaries on contemporary society.
