It is not clear, however, that this aim is at odds with the third aim, the idea that the purpose of education is the development of the learner. For it might be held that the individual is indeed best developed precisely by being initiated into that common heritage, and, more strongly, that not to be so initiated is a kind of privation. Such thinking is particularly relevant to P. H. Hirst’s forms of knowledge thesis: there are a number of distinct forms of knowledge, and a liberal education should encompass an introduction to each one of these; a person who has not been introduced to any one of these forms will be deprived of the ability to look at and to understand the world in that way, ultimately with effects on that person’s practical reason.

H. Hirst’s forms of knowledge thesis: there are a number of distinct forms of knowledge, and a liberal education should encompass an introduction to each one of these; a person who has not been introduced to any one of these forms will be deprived of the ability to look at and to understand the world in that way, ultimately with effects on that person’s practical reason. Such a limitation is a partial denial of freedom. What is rejected is the idea that a person can come upon such forms of knowledge by chance or by themselves: such possibilities of understanding are not matters of unfolding or development from within nor are they effected through a process of discovery in a kind of raw confrontation with the world.
