This is water: “the real value of a real education”

In 2005, David Foster Wallace gave a commencement address and spoke of the “real value of a real education” – an education that fosters freedom by cultivating the power to be aware, to think, and to choose.  This kind of education is one we aspire towards through our contemplative, community focus.

The video was made several years after Wallace’s death in 2008; the full speech can be accessed here.
