Abstract

In democratic systems the fundamental guidelines are set not by the elite but by ordinary citizens. Many of the issues dividing society are philosophical in nature; they can be solved only by citizens with some philosophical learning. Specialized training in one field is not enough: the broader the education that citizens have received, the better it is for them.
