Headword: Παιδεία
Adler number: pi,853
Translated headword: education
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] learning.[1]
"We believe that a genuine education [paideia] is not a subtlety politicked with words and with speech, but the healthy disposition of a prudent understanding and true opinions about good things and evil, noble things and shameful. Whoever then believes some things but teaches other things to those around him, he himself seems to be so far distant from education as he is also from being a good man."[2]
Greek Original:
Παιδεία: ἡ παίδευσις. παιδείαν ὀρθὴν εἶναι νομίζομεν οὐ τὴν ἐν τοῖς ῥήμασι καὶ τῇ γλώττῃ πολιτευομένην εὐρυθμίαν, ἀλλὰ διάθεσιν ὑγιᾶ νοῦν ἐχούσης διανοίας καὶ ἀληθεῖς δόξας ὑπέρ τε ἀγαθῶν καὶ κακῶν, ἐσθλῶν τε καὶ αἰσχρῶν. ὅστις οὖν ἕτερα μὲν φρονεῖ, διδάσκει δὲ ἕτερα τοὺς πλησιάζοντας, αὐτὸς ἀπολελεῖφθαι τοσούτῳ δοκεῖ τῆς παιδείας, ὅσῳ καὶ τοῦ χρηστὸς ἀνὴρ εἶναι.
[1] (cf. pi 857, end.) Likewise in other lexica.
