Mathematics, Logic, and Latin

“The ideal trivium education, and the least harmful one to society and pupils, would be mathematics, logic, and Latin; a double dose of Latin authors to compensate for the severe loss of wisdom that comes from mathematics; just enough mathematics and logic to control verbiage and rhetoric.”

~Nassim Nicholas Taleb, The Bed of Procrustes
