I had a conversation with a friend a few months back about why our historical moment seemed to be so short on polymaths We threw around a bunch of theories For example that much learning is driven by necessity and since at least Steve Pinker who is weird btw thinks so our historical moment is the best there s ever been meaning most of our problems have been solved difficult to believe with what s going on in the world we simply don t need to think or innovate as much about fundamental interdisciplinary uestions that affect humanity Or and this was what we ended up settling on that specialisation was the cause of this a charitable reading of which would imply that we were simply living in a time of scholarly intellectual humility which is not necessarily a bad thing Now scholars spend years studying and writing about say the effect of the green corn rebellion of 1917 on the fertility rates of the Amish community of Bumblefuck Who gives a shit between the interwar years or something of the sort As a result our knowledge is useful clearer certainly rigorous But not many people can speak on lots of things we are locked into our tiny silos to converse only with those interested in the same things as us Take us out of our intellectual comfort zones and we uickly resort to platitudes this is what many academic conferences at least the ones I ve been to feel like Early modern polymaths were different Kant for example having left K nigsberg maybe three times in his life felt himself ualified to speak authoritatively and write a treatise on international relations all the while being the most important moral theorist to ever exist Supposedly all he needed were those beautiful enlightenment ualities of sensation logic and reason Alexander Pope did science and wrote prose John Stuart Mill was a technocrat a politician and a philosopher par excellenceSayers argument in this essay is that the kind of education afforded people like Kant or Bentham etc the one which reigned throughout the middle ages all the way to the beginning of the enlightenment was superior to whatever we have going on now The most important thing to learn she thinks is how to learn by which she means a mode of orientation that conduces us to acuire broad and useful knowledge and this is what the early moderns were taught Our education system on the other hand she thinks places too much emphasis on subject specific knowledge on F cher which we end up forgetting as soon as we leave school anyway The result is that she thinks we are nothing than credentialed people who have no meaningful learning and who probably can t face novel challenges well simply because we don t know how to learn The analogy she gives is of a kid who has had drilled into his head how to play a particular piece on the piano but who when given a new piece doesn t know what to make of it because he never learned his notes or scoresShe thus proposes a return to the curriculum of the middle ages the trivium constituted of grammar dialectic and rhetoric and the uadrivium higher training typically in the Mathematical arts and here Sayers showcases a fondness for the purported supremacy of logic over the likes of geometry and calculus always the abstract universal over the concrete and not useful outside itself specific Sayers thinks the intellectual developmental stages of children can roughly be dived into three stages 1 The poll parrot stage when they are young and mostly invested in mimicry and repetition at which point it is a great idea to teach them grammar 2 The pert stage pre teen argumentative little shits who since they are going to be nuisances anyway might as well be taught dialectics so that at the very least they ll annoy you elouently and 3 The poetic stage that early to mid teen stage when people develop a language for themselves and thus yearn to express themselves but also fancy themselves misunderstood and when it is best to have them learn rhetoric Sayers argues that this sort of education as it was offered in the middle ages was superior for it laid the foundation to enable these children to learn anything They could have gone through the first fourteen or so years of their lives without learning much science but they could also go to university at 16 uickly learn science for what they had learned unlike us was how to learn and end up becoming remarkable scientists This was how polymaths were createdSayers theory smacks of Platonism Straussianism in many places some modes of education some disciplines even some kinds of individuals are implicitly construed as superior ua this idea of education But for some reason I consistent Plato and Strauss basher don t find Sayers theory at all repugnant I reckon it s because on some level it also has Deweyan pragmatic strands running through it and having been uncomfortable with some applications of Dewey s education theories I consider Sayers a happy balance For example she thinks classical European languages most especially Latin should be taught to kids as early as possible but this is not because Latin is intrinsically special in some capacity as someone like say Allan Bloom or Anthony Kronman would probably argue but only because she thinks it will make the acuisition of other European languages easier She thinks children necessarily need guidance and direction in their intellectual endeavours not the perversion of Dewey s Democracy Education that has taken over recently where children are basically allowed to do whatever the fuck they want because education should be experimental and geared towards personal discovery But she also thinks children need to be given space to reasonably disagree with adults and that it is in fact important to encourage such disagreement and self expression hence the teaching of dialectic to little shits I think my appreciation is heightened because she struck a balance for me between tiger mom actually very lovely in person despite her shady politics and the crass liberal parenting that provides kids with no instruction or direction other than to discover themselves I personally wish someone had been firm with me as a child given me a useful course of instruction to follow taught me dialectics and rhetoric when I was a preearly teen but also given me the tools to uestion and the language to think for myself and self define It would have made me a better learner I think a better human and oh so much better at expressing myself
