Newman wants a “discipline of mind” in education, not some new system that looks good on paper.
The world God made has a natural law of cause and effect built into it. One act of love really benefits the whole of creation, and one sin harms the same whole. On the individual level, our personal sins, as well as our acts of love, mold our character moment by moment.
St. John Henry Newman’s philosophy of education reminds that the true education is the formation of human nature in the image and likeness of God.
