Education would fail ignominiously in its objectives if it manufactured only a robot and called it an economic man, accenting the adjective ‘economic’ and forgetting the substantive ‘man’ …. Science is a means, not an end, where as culture is an end in itself. … An Engineer has not merely to build bridges; he has to be a devoted husband, a kind father, a friendly neighbor, a dutiful citizen and man true to himself. He will have trials and tribulations; his heart will fail him at times; he will then need the strength which culture alone can give.
