Recapitulation

Before discussing what liberal education frees us for,  it is a good time to recapitulate what Liberal education what if frees us from  as well as how it frees us from the things that it free us.

First we say that it frees a person from intellectual slavery  (see  slavery)

Which we divided into four kinds  (see  A division of the four kinds of slavery from which Liberal education frees us.)

Then we introduced catharsis, the method by which liberal education frees a person from slavery. Catharsis is most apparent with the slavery to passion. (see Catharsis)

Next we defined the first kind of slavery- the slavery to passion (Slavery to Passion)

Then we discussed catharsis a little more, dividing it interestingly into three kinds!(Three Cartharses)

The second kind of slavery is slavery to fashion (see slavery to fashion) and expanded upon (More on Fashion)

Then we introduced the third kind of slavery.( Slavery to Custom)

which we quickly divided into three kinds:

  1. Temporal Custom
  2. Geographical Custom
  3. Political Custom

Finally we addressed the fourth and final form of intellectual slavery and gave six causes for it. (see Slavery to Error)

Now we can turn our attention to what liberal education frees us for.
