- Educated Man By Henry Norman - 657 words
Educated Man By Henry Norman John Henry Newman, the author of the essay entitled "The Educated Man" begins his essay in a way that was very contradictory to his times. He opens his essay boldly declaring that "A University is not a birthplace to poets or immortal authors, of founders of schools, leaders of colonies, or conquerors of nations." In essence, what he is saying is that the university is not the birthplace of an educated man.

I strongly agree with his essay, and its ...
