"The objectives of a university education should be to instill essential intellectual traits and curiosity in the minds of students and researchers so that they may have intellectual courage instead of intellectual cowardice; intellectual humility instead of intellectual arrogance; intellectual empathy not intellectual closed-mindedness; intellectual autonomy not intellectual conformity; intellectual integrity not intellectual hypocrisy; intellectual perseverance not intellectual laziness; confidence in reason not distrust of reason and evidence; fair-mindedness and not intellectual unfairness."
