Philosophy of Education: It's simple: learn to read and read a lot of good material. This is supplemented by travel and language study. The downside of this extensive knowledge is that you will begin to know more than others and frustration can set in. So, another learning process is key: patience and forebearance. Possibly wisdom will follow.
