Dialectical Education

"One of the curious things about our educational system, I would note, is that the better trained you are in a discipline, the less used to dialectical method you're likely to be.  In fact, young children are very dialectical; they see everything in motion, in contradictions and transformations.  We have to put an immense effort into training kids out of being good dialecticians."
