Clipped: Seymour Papert

“I FEEL VERY DEEPLY COMMITTED TO THE IDEA that, although rationality isn’t everything, and passion and interests and faith of various sorts count as much–nevertheless, rationality is a force for the good, and the more people that are capable of rational, critical thinking–the better the world will be; the more that have access to knowledge about the rest of the world–the better the world will be.”

–Seymour Papert,¬†Mathematician, Computer Scientist, Educator – 2007 Interview – One Laptop Per Child
