Quote from John Dewey,

"The only freedom that is of enduring importance is the freedom of intelligence, that is to say, freedom of observation and of judgment, exercised in behalf of purposes that are intrinsically worth while. The commonest mistake made about freedom is, I think, to identify it with freedom of movement, or, with the external or physical side of activity."


John Dewey (more quotes by John Dewey or books by/about John Dewey)

(1859-1952) American philosopher, psychologist, professor, and progressive educational reformer.
