Defeated and undermined…but loving it!

A university can only do its job if it is an environment which, in amongst everything else that it does, also allows for the repeated defeat of illusions, the repeated undermining of inadequately responsive ways of thinking and acting.

I came across this quotation from Peter Higton in his Grove booklet on ‘Vulnerable Learning’ while I was reading for my dissertation last year.  I love it because it sums up so completely my postgrad study experiences.  I seem to have been under many illusions and have often had inadequate responses undermined by my studies.  Still, how else to grow…?!
